Early on Midsummer morning and the light is beautiful. I fling on some clothes and wander into the garden.
There's a clear blue sky for Friday Skywatch.
In the veg garden I check the barricades, my anti deer, rabbit and pigeon structures. The peas, mangetout and even the sweetpea plants have been eaten. Deer have also nibbled the tips off some of the roses. I squidge all the grubs that I can find on the asparagus fronds between my fingers before they can do any more damage. All is not as serene as it looks!
But things look well in the fruit cage. We've been eating our own strawberries, raspberries and red currants for the last couple of weeks, with plenty more to come.
I LOVE days like these.
