You don’t always get the weather you want, especially in the UK.
Yet the gorgeous buttercup yellow of a flower, thought of by many as a weed, certainly adds brightness on a day with less sunshine than we might have hoped for. But then, a weed is simply a plant you don’t want, which means the definition certainly doesn’t apply in our garden.
Ironically, or perhaps fittingly, I’ve spent most of today – the longest day in the northern hemisphere – at work. I therefore didn’t get to enjoy my garden at all today.
Still, there is always tomorrow…

False Spring to late snows
Wrap up warm and wait for warmth
The Sun will come soon
