May has settled in and, apart from a few days of icy blast (NOT welcome) we can see the massive surge forward of the seasons as everywhere has ‘greened’ around us.
These pictures, taken last weekend, give an idea of just how much growth there has been. They depict stories: The Robin showing the way (The Secret Garden), Hattie learning that she is an orphan (Tom’s Midnight Garden) and Mrs Tiggy Winkle from her eponymous story.

The installations were part of a special ‘open’ weekend at Honey Pot Books, and the garden happily received its story characters as they nestled down in the shrubberies.
That was last eekend – but since then, it has rained rather a lot! The garden keeps growing, so this afternoon has been dedicated to mowing the lawns and sorting out some flower pots. You’ve got to grab every opportunity over the next few weeks – or you’ll need Prince Charming, sword in hand, to hack a way to your front door!
