Sun, then a quick burst of rain, then sun again this morning. After some messing around on the internet (research!) I put on a pan of soup for work lunches and then headed out into the garden and planted my seed potatoes on grow bags, dug up the rogue potatoes in the asparagus bed and relocated them, and potted out some plug plants.

I noticed that the clematis we planted last year is thriving and flowering:

The sage that seeded itself outside the garage is well at home:

Lacey is hiding under a bush:

The rhubarb is ready to be cut:


This alpine strawberry is growing well:

All in all a day I feel privileged to live where I do.  When I came back in the soup was ready to finish and decant into containers:

Then I sat down with a tasty cup of liquorice and lemon tea:
