Day 4 of the blog challenge, in which I am trying to blog every day for a week. I wouldn’t say I’m running out of words yet. Not really. I just wanted to share some pictures with you, that’s all. Totally not cheating.
|The sun has returned!
|Fru fru snapdragons. Whenever I see them, I sing Copacabana to myself.
|Carnations starting to flower.
|First rose of the summer.
|Borage is pleasingly ugly (like a pair of Clarks shoes) and it self-seeds EVERYWHERE
(like here, in the middle of our path). But the bees love it.
|Nasturtiums coming up. Planning to use these in salads this summer.
|More alliums starting to flower and, so far, surviving Barney’s Reign of Terror.
|Verbena seedlings sown about two months ago. They are the slowest growing things ever.
Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?
|Cosmos, beheaded by Barney, The Naughtiest Cat in the World.
|Obligatory wonky polytunnel shot. Still wonky. Still standing.
|Tomato plants doing well and ready for staking. My wrinkly old crone finger included for scale.
|On a whim, we decided to make a new flower bed for all my seedlings. The picture doesn’t do it justice – it’s 4m wide! The bastard cats are thrilled that we’ve made them such a large litter tray.
