A balmy evening and we arrived to the sight of fellow gardeners happily tilling the land. In our case an explosion of strawberries and flowers meant there was a bumper crop in store for us.

The girls were squealing with excitement as they picked the ripe strawberries. We ate some off the plants, but had enough to bring a whole bucketful home.

Eden noticed that her rose had flowered, and was thrilled to find it has an amazing fragrance. The rest of the roses have bloomed, along with the peony.
Sarah Raven eat your heart out!
As we packed up and headed for home, there was contentment mixed with excitement about having ice cream and strawberries for supper, and the prospects of a great summer ahead.
