Happy with my (p) lot
Well it’s been a while……………………….
We have finally got our house on the market but after 4 weeks not a sausage, or person for that matter coming to the door for viewings!! We are going to have to rent the place out so we can make some money from the old albatross! Hope the tenant likes gardening!
Well things have certainly grown and lushed up since my last blog…..the tomatoes are outside and in their designated pots, the strawberries have started to go red, but with my 3 year old on daily patrol I haven’t had the opportunity to eat any yet!
The Blueberry is blossoming beautifully, she likes ‘boobies’ as she calls them as well so I’ll have to keep my eye out
I only have 2 Courgette plants after donating most of my stock to a local pre -school garden, but they have plenty of flowers on to get a good meal
The other thing is the raspberries, they are Autumn cropping so unfortunately I won’t be here to reap the rewards
My sensory garden has lushed up really well and is full of pots with herbs, fruit, and flowers, |i sit on the bench in the evening where it catches the sun and listen to the birds singing taking in the different smells of mint, lemon balm, thyme, rosemary, oregano, marjoram, sage, lavendar, artemesia, fennel, curry plant and santolina. Touching the bamboo, grasses and stachys (lambs ears)
Everything is budding up for the next phase and my Alliums are putting on a great show
The Solanum – Chillean potato vine has flowered for the first time this year and is creeping its way through the Handel rose which will look lovely
Everything in the borders is looking lush, here are a few pictures
Don’t you just love this time of year!!
