Rambling through the delightful hill and dale scenery of the southern Lake District the other day I chanced upon the tiny hamlet of Grassgarth, near Ings, and this typical image of the English summer.
Whilst the east of the country is suffering rain and cold winds, the west is enjoying ‘flaming June’ in all its summer glory. The frothy, semi-natural vergeside planting and cosy-looking cottages set off by Clematis montana scrambling through the garden hedge made me feel that summer has well and truly arrived. The hot sunshine helped too! The question is (as ever)…will it last?
