On our first morning back from our trip to Wales it seems as though we've woken up to the first day of summer. We had a very good holiday and ate excellent food - Japanese, Turkish and our own family Mediterranean mix of delicious things, but it's wonderful to be back home again. There was rain while we were away so the garden looks very green and bright. One of our neighbours had kept an eye on it for us and thrown out the snails who'd found their way into the cold frame.
Ce matin, le premier après notre retour du Pays de Galles, est comme le premier jour de l'été. Il a plu pendant la dernière semaine et le jardin est vert et clair.
We found a huge crop of mangetout peas and broad beans / on a trouvé beaucoup de pois mangetout et fèves . . .
the apricots and artichokes growing well / les abricots et les artichauts poussent bien . . .
the garden full of the sound of birds and insects / le jardin plein du chant d'oiseau et d'insectes . . .
I thought that this one was a moth at first. Now I think it's a butterfly but I still can't identify it. Please leave a comment if you have any idea what it might be.
The pepper plants are still growing very slowly and I think we may have to buy plants but the tomato plants are ready to be planted out so we have a busy weekend ahead!
Les poivrons poussent très lentement encore et je pense qu'il faut en acheter des plantes, mais les tomates sont prêtes à planter donc le weekend sera chargé!
