The most beautiful purple poppy (I will ask for some seeds) has just come out this morning. Totally wow! I am bewitched by it. I have never seen one that colour.
I am enjoying taking photos of the roses. At every stage of their brief blooming, they are beautiful. The colour, the shape.

A very fast bumblebee hard at work.
And the mighty brick tower – well, I walked around it and tried to work out how it was made. Mum and I think there are three bricks on each layer and she remembers some cement being used too, possibly on the middle edges of the bricks, where you can’t see.
I hope that makes sense. Lay three bricks with the inside corners touching and then place the next layer exactly opposite and keep going up, up, ever upwards.
Little Tedworth followed me around too. A dear little companion.
