Good morning, everyone. I don't know about where you are but here it is raining and looks as if it has been for quite some time. Good for the garden which is pretty dry. There's a bit of a breeze and it felt so chilly in the night that I closed the bedroom window which is usually on tilt and turn. That doesn't happen very often. Yesterday, in contrast, remained lovely and sunny all through the day, just turning dully-grey in the evening. I tried to have the big French window open but the papers kept blowing about after a while as the wind got up.
It was mostly work yesterday but I did take a few photos so here we go . . .
|Possible fruit later on - June drop permitting? Who knows?|
|The irises are, again, lovely! There's a couple of random ones elsewhere in the bed, slap bang in the middle of the crocosmia, and when flowering is done I must move them elsewhere. I've been ruthless with the crocosmia this year and a lot is being pulled up as it dares peep through the soil's surface. It can be quite invasive when it wants to be.|
|Poor tayberry. After surviving for a couple of years before being planted in its forever place, it was thoroughly weeded by an over-enthusiastic young gardener about a month ago. It must love me though - it is coming up again for more. I like tough plants!|
(At least, I am assuming it is the tayberry and not some vile, slow growing - is there such a thing? - weed that has decided to grow in exactly the same spot.)
|The chives are doing well and are being useful in culinary efforts . . .|
|. . . as is the oregano! Must make pizza!|
I also have two likely looking fuchsias in pots, bought (on special, obviously!) at Morrisons. They are healthy, semi-hardy so who knows how long they will survive, growing well in the kitchen and need planting out soon.
Do you know the blog Lavender and Lovage, she made a lovely salad with the chive flowers in it. I love the purple.ReplyDelete
No, I don't. I'll look for it. Thanks.ReplyDelete
