I like the dimension of the relief of this way of working. I also like working with both sides of the embellished felt.
Gardening in July.
Well, the last week it has been sweltering, I don't know how I have been coping with the heat as well as working in the garden but it has been worth it once you look at the results.
The Californian Poppies have been wonderful this year and I was so thrilled to see this little gypsophelia pop up beside; this was a favourite of my Mother's so I look at it and think of her.
Many of the flowers in the main border self seeded from last year, this is what I like, flowers for free. That lovely cottage garden effect.
I love Morning Glory.
I spent two days tending the strawberry beds, boy did they need tending. Weeding, and training the new runners, I was shattered, I finished 9pm the other evening.
Graham's beloved pumpkin is doing well, should be a good one ready for Halloween.
Last but not least, this is only the second year that I have grown garlic. I have two trays full, like this drying in the greenhouse. We have two crops of onions, yellow and red. Our tomatoes don't seem to be suffering from that awful blight that plagued us last year so lots of pasta on it's way. Must get back to work. BFN Tricia
