When the sun shone, it was a very welcome bit of warmth. The wind was cold, and strong. The swallows were loving it - being thrown around above the courtyard garden, swooping down and around the buildings. There were also a couple of yellow wagtails, hopping around on the pantiles, with their beaks stuffed with insects.
This huge tub of tulips was my favourite thing in the garden yesterday, their colours glowing like jewels.
