Things are definitely growing in the garden, the garlic is well and truly up and growing away, the potatoes and onions are in, tomatoes and salad in the polytunnel. And then there are the dandelions (‘pis au lit’ as they are called in France). They are everywhere, the fields are full of them, some completely yellow with the flowers. We have our fair share, that turn to seed so quickly.
When we moved in 6 months ago the garden was established but very overgrown so we’re gradually claiming it back from the brambles and ivy. The latest shrub to bloom is a beautiful red camellia. It has Buddleia, holly, bay, dogwood and Cotoneaster growing through it but it still looks wonderful.
