garden bloomin’ lovely

In case anyone was wondering how my garden is growing after the deluge and sporadic sunshine, here are a few photos taken this morning. The sweet peas have been heavenly; tomatoes coming along nicely; potatoes not flowered yet but the bins feel heavy (unless its just water!) lettuce delicious and runner beans flowering like mad. Anticipating a grand vegetable crop. Same can’t be said for the beetroot and carrot rows…I think the soil is just too thin, flinty and poor.

I love the contrast of Evening Primroses (yellow) – a bit of a misnomer as they seem to be flowering all day as the weather is so dull this Summer – and the blue of the wild geranium and tall purple weedy thing that looks so pretty I let it grow. My old fashioned roses have taken a rain battering but are now blooming well and the scent is heady. My garden dragons like the colour of the Summer garden (I can’t call it ‘planting’ as it’s a bit haphazard and accidental!) and I caught one of them sniffing around the potatoes…maybe he’s a vegetarian. I’ve moved him out of temptations way now to give them a fighting chance – enough of a problem with slugs without dragons to contend with!
