Continuing with our photograph diary I have been out again with the camera to take photos of the delphiniums as they are coming into flower. I have to say I am no David Bailey but am rather pleased with the results!

I love the poppies which have done really well this year, and I have a wonderful view of them from my kitchen window,

I went out to post some orders earlier and as I came around the corner seeing the fields in the distance certainly made my day. We have quite a few photographers and wedding couples coming out to do some pre wedding photographs in the coming weeks

We have had such a busy time through the winter to ensure that when we had our pickers on site that they had some decent facilities when they took their breaks, we have built them a new staff room, note all the secateurs ready for us to start picking the Confetti Petals. We have  also built two new toilets,  and a new office.
