well, is it a sign?

Having breakfast this morning and gazing out of the window. Sunshine flooding into the room. 

Noticed that the Lonicera fragrantissima has three bumble bees working the flowers.

    2015 has been the hottest year on record, for the planet.

    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

  • Not a sign in itself, but as part of a pattern it may well be.

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    A couple of my Autumn planted broad beans started to show flowers. A cold snap sorted them out.

    Glorious morning in Notts, so what's a gal to do?  Of course, wander round the 'estate' with one's coffee and pick off those few stems on the last of the perennials to fade.  What did the gal do?  Spent 2 hours doing said picking off, then gathering leaves, weeding for goodness' sake, staking up the 2 delphiniums that have taken it into their heads to flower, wondered at the photinia that is suddenly growing again, reminding the lupins that regrowing in December is not a good idea, more weeding - and still a load to do!  Oh yes, and the coffee went cold...As the rain is coming in tonight (again!), I'd better fuel up and get out there again this aft.  Ah, the Brits and their gardens!!
