Honeysuckle flowers today. They're in the dryer for use later in pot pourri or hand cream.
First alpine strawberries today as well.

Just picked the first few loganberries and blackcurrants, which have been padded out with some gooseberries, blueberries and alpine strawberries for my muesli in the morning

First loganberry today, and a fistfull of elderflowers.

I'm a bit worried about the apples though. My two eaters don't seem to have any young fruit on them and I can only see one tiny little cooking apple. I can't see any baby quinces either which is also worrying.

Found one green cherry on the floor and after a massive search one cherry amongst 4 cherry trees - seems the frost killed the blossom this year, same with some but luckily not all of the apples.
The weather seems to delaying some crops but we have had bumper crops of broad beans, peas, mangetout and artichoke.

Fresh fruit Salad, with home grown Strawberries and Raspberries ( MMM I didn't cut back my autumn raspberries as I moved them, and they have fruited before the Summer ones!)

The most beautifully scented Roses, I adore them.

Blackcurrants within a week I reckon.

Rhubarb.

All the salad leaves & herbs are doing really well too.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
