One piece of advice Monty Don always gives is to take time to enjoy our gardens especially at this time of year. Well for once (actually twice) we have enjoyed drinks in the summerhouse and watched the sunset over Hillside. It's been too glacial to sit on the terrace and the summerhouse is just the perfect spot. The hawthorn blossom is just wonderfully fragrant as are the lilacs and the scent wafts across in the still cool air. The wisteria is coming into bloom and fledgling birds are hopping around the garden in the undergrowth. At this time of year, the changes in the garden happen so fast, it's especially nice to take time to sit and enjoy the sights, sounds and scents. Yep, Monty's definitely got a point......................sigh.
