We have Strawberries ripening and I cannot wait to taste one, just to see how sweet they are. I have put a lot of love and watering into these babies and so far they have not been taken by the birds or other nasty’s.
The Poached Egg plants are finally flowering and looking nice and summery.
Yesterday we bought three new plants for our garden. The Foxglove is my favourite, I love the colour and it will be a welcome addition to the wild flower garden.
My Runner Beans have flowers. These ones near the wildflower area are doing really well, but the others at the other end of the garden are still struggling. I am going to have to treat the soil to some fertilizer at the end of the growing season.
New Poppies, which will spread year on year.
We also bought a Salvia Hot Lips, which on the 10th May was the Guardian’s Plant of the Week. I did not know until today it was plant of the week. We bought it because Keith liked it.
Geraniums are blooming fabulous.
The Tomato plants have really taken off and we have flowers on them, so looking forward to our own Tomatoes.
All in all our garden is really doing well aided by lots of watering whilst the weather continues to be warm.
