You may know this plant by another name - Cow Parsley - but where I grew up in the East Midlands it goes by the lovely name of Keck. For me it heralds early summer and reminds me of those lovely sunny summers of childhood that we all seem to recall but did they really exist? Here are some photos of it along the edges of my garden and along the side of the lane where we live.
Finally the warm, sunny weather we had at the weekend was all a bit too much for my elderly alpaca Monty. He decided it was time for a paddle in the water trough!
