I love this time of year. After a long winter it's such a relief to be outside in the fresh air. I don't even mind working in between the intermittent showers of rain we've been having. It's so much fun planning and thinking about the garden. I find myself at the garden centres oodling over the tables of flowers and imagining the scent of fresh herbs at my doorstep. Pinks and purples and dainty little white flowers.
