Jewels at the Pres ….. A Garden Diary in Normandy
Jewels at the Pres
A Garden Diary in Normandy
It’s the second week of June, 2014.
We arrive at 02.30 after a fairly fraught day getting here!
The Pres is overgrown, after a month away in May.
The grass is long and spattered with yellow common cats’ ear flowers and the topiary is becoming fuzzy; but there are jewels all around the garden.
Some of the roses are old fashioned chocolate box cover pictures!
Not all the jewels are flowers; there are beautiful insects too.
We might even get enough gooseberries from the beleaguered, neglected bush for one meal next week!

After one late afternoon’s cut, the garden begins to look cared for again.
