Thursday, July 30th, 2009
Hot, hot weather, and time in the garden is limited to the coolness of the early morning hours.
This morning I tackled the sad and spent lambs ears that had crept out of the confines of the garden, on to the road. Two wheelbarrow's full to add to the growing compost heap.
The wildflower garden is blooming wildly, and this morning I found an oblong pumpkin growing in amongst the flowers.
The Sunflowers are trying to outdo the barn flower (which towers)and this morning the two goldfinches that have been frequenting the spent sunflowers for seed flew in and out and only occasionally made themselves available for a picture (sad, and in need of editing)
A late lily, and the white phlox just beginning to bloom....
A lot of tidying still to do, and the rhubarb needs to be harvested, - along with the two cucumbers and a handful of cherry tomatoes.....
