The bees have arrived at last in the bee garden we planted in the spring. It is only a small patch where we planted Rudbeckia, Borage, and sowed Poppies, Cornflowers, Celendine, Daisies etc.. then the weather changed and the rains came and not much grew, we thought the seed must have washed away, but gradually seedlings started to grow...

Two years ago for my birthday we stayed for a few days in Cumbria, we had a wonderful break in the autumn sunshine....Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's cumbrian farmhouse, where she wrote her Peter Rabbit and Co stories, now a museum displaying her life and works... Yew Tree Farm It is where Miss Potter was filmed... Cosy fires and beautiful damson jam!! It was very nice. They now run a B&B but not sure if they still open the tearoom
