With all the rain that we have had in the last couple of weeks, I missed my chance to capture the peonies in the garden. I am heartbroken. This is the problem with peonies – you wait and wait and then they come along and go so quickly.
My plan now is to run into the garden whenever the rain stops and take photos. On Tuesday mum and I did a quick trip to the allotment to check that everything was okay after the bad rain. (All is okay, but the weeds are beginning to thrive).
Elderflowers galore at the allotment – thinking elderflower wine, elderflower syrup, elderflower cordial…
An explosion of chives at the allotment. I actually dislike chives, but love their flowers.
When its not soaking wet, this is a lovely place to sit with a cup of coffee. Herbs – lemon balm, chives, mint and lavender blossom in the vase.
Do you find that you need to document everything to make it seem real rather than just looking and enjoying things?
Beautiful! My grandmother used to make elderberry jelly and pie. We moved our surviving two peonies last year. Only one came up this year. I bought two more and am hoping they make it. My peonies always are covered in ants.

We have been having terrible storms and rain here as well. Some plants seem to be thriving but other are starting to yellow with no sun for weeks.
