The sun is doing it's magic

Breakfast outside in the garden, in the sunshine, is the best way to start the day. 
I've been going for my run straight after the school drop off, so can enjoy a more leisurely breakfast on my return. It's so peaceful and calm, if you ignore the cockerel and the neighbour's barking dogs but no bickering kids, no rush, just me, the sunshine and my garden.

In just over a month my veg patch has exploded. When you see it in pictures it really is impressive. We have chard, courgettes, onions and peas in this bed.

18th May
12th June
and my beans are suddenly taking off.

The peas are full of pods fattening up ready for picking

and annoyingly we have our first gardening casualty. This is what happens when you leave your 'very nearly' ripened strawberry one more day!

I too am fighting a snail/slug war! We have more this year than ever! Yes, a coffee in peace in the garden when the sun is shinning is wonderful! Mandy x
