the garden

is filled with the scent of honeysuckle. Today it smells like the most beautiful thing in the world. It is feverishly hot outside in the sun and the hum of bumblebees amongst the sage blossom is the loudest sound in the garden. I have been walking up and down the path, to and from the water tap to stop my lovely plants from wilting in this heat. The courgettes have finally mustered the courage to put out some flower buds. Tardy, but I'm happy now they are winking at me from the vegetable patch with the promise of raw courgette salads at least later on this summer. I could spend all day out there if only my conscience didn't keep me chained to my desk. Maybe later it'll let me outside again for a spot of weeding :-).
