PS (Added Sunday 23rd May)


It's another beautiful day and I have a freezer drawer full of home-made chicken stock but I won't be making soup this weekend. Who wants to eat soup on a day like this?



I have been planting some new plants in my back garden, including two new lavenders, which should attract bees.


While on the subject of bees, I was listening to and watching the video for "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel (1986! Was it really twenty-four years ago?) and noticed that he sings about a honey bee:

"Show me round your fruitcage
'cos I will be your honey bee.
Open up your fruitcage
where the fruit is as sweet as can be."  

I wonder what that's about.
