Still early but already warm, the swallows are swooping in and out of the shed offering up morsels to swallow babies. In between they line up on the gutter to scold the cat. A mouse gathered seeds in the grassy, mint patch before running to cover in the undergrowth. The sea is cool and blue, dotted with fishing boats, the Belfast ferry passes on time as usual.

The moon barely made an appearance last night, consumed by the lingering light. A sliver of silver in the pale sky.

But we have a garden this year, maybe not the garden that I see in my imagination but gradually grass gives way to beds filled with flowers and vegetables, (though mostly potatoes to clear the ground – well it is Ayrshire!)
