It seems such a short time ago that we were still shivering and looking out on dark bare trees. Now the garden is at the height of life and colour and already I'm making jam from the blackcurrants and harvesting the first early potatoes. The blackbirds pulled holes in the netting covering the blackcurrants and were flapping around and sounding ever so sad when I was picking the fruit so I've left them the rest to go ripe; I've got 8 jars of jam and I'm worried about our teeth if we have any more.

Borage looks beautiful in the early morning sun

I think this is a Meadow Brown one of the few butterflies I have seen up here

The Corn Marigolds all turn to face the sun

Ox-eye Daisy, Cornflower, Corn Marigold and Dames Violet
I got eight jars of jam and left the rest for the blackbirds 

First potatoes of the year
