On our recent trip to N Devon we saw these beautiful views of Watermouth and Ilfracombe the
day was far from ideal with a fair amount of sea mist about, even so we felt these pictures were worth taking. On a later trip we will retake them and blog them then as well. We are only home now for a few days for hospital visits and paying a few dreaded bills then away for approx 9-10 again. It will soon be time to start gardening in earnest planting hanging baskets, tubs, planters etc, so we will probably be home for a week next time. P . S . I've just checked the cold frame, We have seedlings of F Marigolds, Lobelia, Allysum, Busy Lizzies(Impatients) all coming through nicely.
