A Day in May

Our back garden early afternoon today, warm and cloudy:

And the front garden just before sunset today:

We're so lucky to have this semi-tropical green oasis on our doorstep.

May Morning

After many cloudy days, the sun returned this morning.

And the house was filled with sunshine.

And Granada rose was in full flush with a strong, spicy perfume.
