My Favourite Flowers

Lavender flowers are everywhere in the garden now. The bees are in a blissful state and it is hard to spot a bush without bees on it.

The bees are equally enamoured with the broccoli that has been left for seed saving. Although I am quite partial to broccoli, I think I would much prefer to package our honey up as lavender honey than broccoli honey. It just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Another favourite that is making life more pleasurable is the jasmine. One of my archways is covered in blossoms and the smell is divine. I keep a vase on my bedside table and it is just such a delightful scent whiloe falling asleep and to wake up to.
It's not all rosy though. I spent some of the afternoon rotating the compost bays.
