The garden looks beautiful, full of colour and life. Especially midges, who are starting to make gardening difficult, biting and getting in eyes and mouths. At night they come in, get stuck and end up piled along window bottoms. The sheep were sheared last week and not only did they no longer recognize each other,running around calling and head butting each other they also had to contend with the new and unpleasant sensation of midges on their skin. I've bought a black head net to weed in, very effective, although I almost killed the postman when I stood up to stretch one morning.
