Coming up next!

It must be nearly May-time!  Look what's about to burst into bloom.  We leave for Australia this weekend so I am going to miss the May blossom this year, which is a bit of a blow!  The hedgerows always look so wonderful dressed in blowsy white and I love the hawthorn's almondy smell as Tilly and I walk 'round the block' as we call it!  We have just had a wander down the track and along the lanes which bring us back around to the house again.  It will probably be the last chance Tilly and I will have to do that before we set off, although I hope we can get to the beach too before we leave.  I am really going to miss Tilly whilst we are away.

I love this time of year - the colours in the countryside are really amazing.  This was a field of cabbages until a few weeks ago.  Living in East Lothian is a bit like being in a giant allotment - the fields are full of different vegetables!  I will find out what has been planted in this field when we get home at the end of June, no doubt something will be sprouting again by then!
