What a glorious end to the day. After a cloudy, gloomy start, we ended the day in hot sunshine. Working on the land in the summer is pure joy.

These are the remnants of our once great Chestnut avenue. It used to stretch for a good quarter of a mile. Sadly, it has become a shadow of its former self, but it still retains a certain dignity.

I’m back home after a day of professional training... I’m infinitely more tired having been sat behind a desk than I would be after a day of mowing... Coming home to the latest copy of Gardens Illustrated helps though. I’ll be back in the garden tomorrow, so I’ll see you all there.

We’re out picking strawberries at @tibbsfarm . It’s not a bad way to be spending a Sunday.

Wow. My trip to The Chelsea Physic Garden was awesome. My head is spinning with plants that I’ll endeavour to place in the beloved garden that I’m restoring. The garden team oozed skill, led brilliantly by @botanicaljones . What a day!

I have a rare day off tomorrow. Obviously that means a visit to gardens! I’ll be heading to London for The Chelsea Physic Garden, which I’m seriously excited about. Until then, our roses are just divine at the moment. The air has been filled with fragrance for days now.

Explosive Elderflower. It’s still flowering, adding a dash of white to the countryside right now.

What a fun day! It was another fast paced day in the garden, made even more enjoyable by the visit of some talented gardeners. The passion found in this industry is a real honour.

Iris King of The Blues. As you can probably tell, I have a love of Irises. They’re short lived flowers, but that kind of adds to their utter magic. I’m also a huge lover of blues music, so this is a good, if somewhat tenuous link.

Here’s to the week ahead. It looks like another breathlessly intense one again, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
