What glorious weather we are having!
I love it but the plants are not too happy with the heat. However the butterflies seem to be enjoying both the weather and our plants. We have had so many fluttering around. They are so pretty to see. Along with the butterflies are many bees around the clover on the lawn and lavender.
This week I thought I'd update you on how our vegetable garden is coming on as well as a few photographs of some pretty flowers which are opening up.
This is how our garden has grown this week...
|I love going down the garden to harvest vegetables for our meals!|
|My herb garden is getting full!|
|Our first aubergine is growing.|
|We have some bizarre looking cucumbers growing|
(they are supposed to look like that!)
|Carrots are just ready to harvest.|
|Our huge cabbages!|
|Our courgettes are enormous compared to last year.|
|This is the first year we have attempted to grow sweetcorn and|
it is doing so well.
|We have our first ears of corn coming.|
|Our lovely, full greenhouse.|
|I took this photograph of the Dahlia at dusk, I loved how vibrant|
the pink looks against the dark leaves
