Sunsets, Music in the Garden and Ubiquitous Valerian

Last night's sunset.
Struck by the scourge of marking today - I managed to get into the garden to do some, and then Su suggested I set up our trestle table and have this lovely view. Stayed out there this afternoon, when Stephen came round with his new musical device - a cajon (AKA a box that you sit on and hit!). Much fun was had all round. 
Our newly acquired pink has its first flower, complete with delicious aroma. 
These "false nettles" (as I think of them) are out in profusion once again. 
A plethora of blackberry flowers down the path to Fairfield Park Road. 
Umbellifers also abound. 
Along Fairfield Park Road a surfeit of valerian! (Bella unimpressed…) 
Further up the road, some white valerian. 
Delicate flowers clinging to the high wall of the Royal High School 
 Tonight's sunset was really spectacular!
This day a year ago, we were at Westonbirt and a little bemused by this sign - how else would pedestrians get about?
