Ooh ooh, I love my garden in the early morning. When everything is so fresh, green, slightly cold and covered in a thin layer of dew. There’s nothing better than padding around, cup of coffee in hand, and inspecting the new day.
The spiders are working at full pelt at this time of year. After a season of eating they’re big and juicy and able to spin the biggest webs that span the tall feathers on my Sweetcorn plants. Covered in dew they look like an Athena poster (look it up) just waiting to happen.
But my favourites are my pumpkins. All hard and cold, just waiting for the sun to toughen them up some more. Yes today looks like being a glorious day. Garden centre methinks – to buy some tulip bulbs.
