A Navajo Indian saying.
The fine warm weather over the weekend meant that the working party managed to get much done. A lot of gardening was undertaken including weeding, pruning, thinning out and planting up. One major job was to tidy the sheds. Another was to refresh the paint on the HQ shed.

|All tidy for the time being!|
The potatoes were planted up along with the barley and field poppies
|The potato patch. Desiree variety this year|
|The barley and poppy patch is pigeon proofed!|
In the pond the first Marsh Marigolds are flowering and also White Deadnettle. Despite best efforts the green algae is building up in the pond again. Some barley straw has been sourced and after removing as much algae as we can next weekend we will put the straw in and hope that the magic works!

The refreshed Aeolian wind organ has now been linked with decorative flags from Tibet. These colourful flags convey hope, prosperity and happiness.

The Amelanchier which was moved in the Autumn last year is now enjoying the new position which gives it more light. The beautiful delicate flowers appear before the leaves. The flowers resemble a snow storm.
With warm Summer evenings approaching it is worth looking to the heavens to watch this amazing spectacle
