So i am back in bed and on my third round of antibiotics after an emergency appointment at my doctors yesterday. this bunch of flowers, picked when i felt okay earlier in the week, is for all of you who feel unwell, exhausted or unhappy.

Saponaria officinalis - or soapwort. a pretty and unassuming little perennial, so called as its flowers can be used as soap. a perfect plant for the cottage garden - i love it.

Most of my tomatoes have ripened at once, so i’m making a large batch of passata this morning. and as my nephew is coming for dinner, i can then make his favourite cheese and tomato pasta bake.

My other half spends much of his time walking on the south downs - when he finds a stretch that i’ll do he makes note. so finally i have accompanied him from hooksway up to see the devils jumps (bronze age barrows) and the memorial stone for the german pilot hauptmann joseph oestermann, shot down on the first day of the battle of britain. pic 3 shows the fabulous pub where recovered afterwards. a perfect day out - and yes, it is hard to keep up with him!

The golden scale fern, dryopteris affinis, constantly outperforms just about everything else in my garden.
