Garden treasure

We all know how much it has rained this summer. There have been days when I haven't ventured down the garden. The mosquitoes are enormous and bites require antibiotics. Climbing beans and sweet peas are half their normal size. But today we found a treasure. Years ago Denise gave us one which we planted in the meadow. It disappeared....The meadow was once the lawn, but with a high water table it was impossible to cut, so we let it grow. Now we have lots of wild flowers and now our newest arrival.... now we need crested newts and our garden can be a site of special scientific interest!!
