The greenhouse has started to earn its keep as we have had cucumbers now. Lettuces have done well but we have a temporary lull. And next month we should finally have broad beans. The garden is full of colour and variety. Not all of which was planned.
This appeared in a neglected corner of the garden. Mr E picked and presented it for me, then we found out the fluid in the stem is poisonous. That will teach us.
But this is just pretty and the bees love it. I have noticed that bees prefer natural flowers to the ones we have carefully nurtured.
Although that little fellow seems happy enough.
This clematis appears when and where it jolly well feels like. This year we have lots of blooms which have now tumbled up and over the fence into next doors.
Isn’t this baby blackbird so sweet. I hadn’t really thought about their feathers but he/she has no tail yet. By the way the Dad is the blackbird with the white feathers we, ok I named Fred. But I have not seen Fred for a week. Hope he is ok.
Back to the flowers, and at this time of year my favourite at least for this week are the roses. I leave you with three of them. All have a gorgeous fragrance, my favourite is third, but let me know which you like best won’t you.
