I've been tidying up the garden this week, in anticipation of having some viewers. It's been lovely - the lavender hedge has come on well and is moving with bees, as is the borage and the marjoram.

Some marigolds that I planted last year have self seeded and are mingled with self seeded poppies, chamomile, mallow and gowans in a riot of pink, red, yellow, orange and white. I could never deliberately grow something as lovely.

Lovely as it is, it's in the vegetable garden so I set off today to weed it all out. As I started, I could see that it was full of tiny frogs, bees and ladybirds so I'll just have to leave it meantime and hope the viewers are understanding.

Looks lovely! I'm surprised your lavender is doing so well. Most of mine died off in the extreme cold last winter, along with my rosemary and bay

We lost a few plants, although the bay and rosemary survived along with the lavender. Maybe we missed the worst being close to the river.

The place looks just wonderful!! I am sure you will have a lot of buyers! Love the walkway with the heather and it has such a pretty view! How are you and Dan holding up through all of your new adventures? Great I hope! We are having a lot of dry weather here. Luckily we have a good well. Love the pictures and the very interesting history. Maybe one day you can put together a little book on the total history of this place.

I sure hope we get a few genuinely interested viewers. A friend also has a house on the market - she's had 43 viewers in four weeks but a lot are timewasters, which is a shame.

It does look lovely IMHO and it's been a very happy home so hopefully whoever buys it will have an equally happy life there. It has good vibes - lots of light!
