Well as I look out the window I am drawn to the May blossom in the sun, there is some warmth in the air at last and there is a hum of insects preparing for Summer. My favourite time of year it's "Beltane" in the Celtic calender.
I have planted sweet peas and runner beans, cosmos and carrots as well as calendular, leeks, rocket and squash. I'm looking forward to eating some of my own home grown vegetables very soon.
Now I'm off to paint a lovely old oval mirror, and then later on down to view at the local auction, to see if I can hunt out any vintage furniture.
