can't wait!


By lountad


Am very excited, tomorrow we are off to Hampton Court, it’s been a few years since we last went (due to the extortionate entry fees!!) so will be making the most of it, especially as my mum’s got the kids for the day.

In the garden everything is filling out nicely, in some places a bit too much! It’s nice to be able to compare with before and during photos on here to see how far everything has come. The veg patch is doing nicely, have just planted the secind bed with leeks and swedes in. We’ve already harvested radishes, plenty of leetuce, baby carrots, baby courgettes, chard leaves and there’s tons of toms waiting to ripen. The chilli’s look like they’re just about to flower and even the butternut squash look like they’re actually doing something (not sure what lol!).

Most things are in flower now including some reddish/black sunflowers, marigolds, gazanias, nasturtiums, poppies. Waiting for verbena, dahlia’s, zinnia, orange geraniums, and nigella just about ready to go by the looks of it. It’s a great time of year when you go out every morning and something else has blossomed.

It's looking great, what a transformation in just a few months. We gardeners just start it off and Mother Nature does the rest (well, with a bit of guidance from us!). Well done. Like you, I love to see 'before' and 'after' pictures. I love the elephant, what is it made from?
Have a good time at Hampton Court!
