The Tahitian Lime is in full swing. By that I mean it is humming! It is laden with fruit and is experiencing another wave of the most wonderfully perfumed flowers. These are being visited by hoards of bees which literally have the tree humming in the warm afternoon light. It is a joy visually as well as therapeutic to the ear. The hum emanates through the garden.
It is a pleasant corner of the what has now become ‘the old garden’ now that we have moved to – the new garden. In the corner is the lime tree, a mulberry in a pot, a lemon verbena which I use to flavour tea and a geranium which decided it liked that particular corner also and has set up home under the mulberry.
