Hmmmm, this year I have not touched a thing in the garden - apart from the weeds and transplanting a few strawberry plants into pots, and what do you suppose is happening?
Well, the garden is thriving! Honestly I think this could be a lesson in not to be over zealous in pruning. My apple trees branches are absolutely laden with young fruit...
The rose bushes are the same... please excuse the one dead-head - must go and snip it off after I've finished this post :)
my strawberries have got a nice bunch of berries developing...
and the poppy seeds that I casually shook over the beds last autumn are prolific and should bloom in the next two weeks or so.
Already the ones along the front of the house are splitting their safe little green nests :)
I just LOVE this month. The garden really seems to come into it's own at this time. Someone else is loving the warmer days too...
|Is that a bird I hear? Yummmm|
|Better first check to see if anyone is watching...|
|Yip! Better not try it!!|
A few blooms from the garden...
|I'm loving my Irises at the mo.|
|Yellow and Pink - so pretty together.|
|... of all kinds.|
|I love this Victorian Cross poppy (I think that's what they were called) that was brought out last year for the WW1 centenary|
|I'm loving this little bed just below my bedroom window. It's so pretty. Those little white flowers become masses of orange berries in the autumn. The blackbirds love them and I often see and hear them gathering the fruit in the fall.|
**SIGH** I do love this month! Don't you?
