        It's a secret - I'll tell you on Friday. Not saying beforehand in case it doesn't happen...
        Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

            Not a secret any more: well-rotted, organic mustang horse poop has arrived. Half of it, anyway. And it is extremely well rotted. Absolutely perfect, except the supplier and Mr Snoop and I clearly have very different ideas about what a cubic metre measures. Definitely less, but such good quality I won't complain. In fact, it's so soft and fine It'll be really easy to spread. And not niffy, so the dogs are showing no interest in it whatsoever. A big advantage...

            No hay, though. So I need to see if I can source that elsewhere. Not easy to get hold of bales of manageable size, though.

            But I'm extremely happy. And the plants will be too.

                  Seeing a few teeny baby plums on what I thought was a badly frosted plum tree.

                    Rain after a long dry spell
                    Seeing fields of cut grass
                    swallows darting around
                    Bats
                    Wild flowers in the hedgerow
                    Longer evenings
                    Anticipating staying with family soon
                    Seeing our combined diy finally coming together!
                    And you lot!

                        Watching an edible snail in the garden. It was huuuuge!….but nowhere near my potager so I left him/her to it.

                          A very young Coronella girondica snake curled up around some plants in one of my seed trays. It wasn't happy to see me. By the time my phone had switched on, it had slithered away, with no damage done to my seedlings. Probably eating millipedes at the moment - we have hundreds of them again this year - before moving on to lizards (boo) and small rodents (hooray).

                              Picked a pound of little wild raspberries and turned them into a pound and a bit of jam to add summer sparkle to toast in the depths of winter.

                                Pottering about in my garden till I can't see well enough to continue.
                                Happiness is my garden, even when it is doing everything it can to break me!
                                Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds and a Giant Puffball!
