I don't know about where you are but the weather here has been pretty poor. Every year I say I'm going to keep a diary and actually record what the weather has been like. I wish I had this year - surely it can't have been as bad as I think?

It's the first of June; it's cold and wet. I mean real cold and real wet. Not fun.

However, we had a very busy day on Sunday (Saturday was windy and rainy) at least on the tidying front. Dan has strimmed for Britain and the place looks less like the Clampett's. Unfortunately, the "beautifulest gate" has not survived the winter. Dan reckons the timber wasn't properly preserved. The spars have been piled up for disposal and a new gate will emerge in due course.

I am taking over the orchard. I'm not really sure why because I have no more idea what to do than Dan but he does have a lot to do in the vegetable garden, so I'll do the trees. Maybe Dan was impressed by my magnificent pruning of the roses and the buddleia last yer. They have almost recovered!

I'm not sure where to start - with a book and a surf on the net, I suppose. Watch this space...
