Not a lot of people would be happy to report that, but as a grower, the dry heat of recent weeks has been a close call for the younger plants!
More peas and beans were planted out yesterday, so this rain will bed them in nicely!
If it was possible to bottle the Earth Scents outside in the gardens, then I’d be a millionaire and could buy lots more land to plant trees on!
There is another Earth Sense though…one we all need to tune into…one that ensures a sense of well-being.

Apple blossom this morning at Bealtaine. As I write this I am listening to Irish Radio…talking endlessly about money, economics, making people spend money, kick-starting the economy! They just don’t get it! The wealth of a country must be measured in the health and wellbeing of its people… Rhubarb waiting for me to turn it […]
Found this morning on a bank at Bealtaine…the first Orchid of the year and I think this is the Green Winged Orchid that can be found only in occasional habitats here in Ireland. The flowers should open up today…when I shall take another pic and post later…it’s exciting! The flower head of Lunaria, (Honesty) is […]
