Here is a bit of what's growing in the garden at the moment. I haven't done as much gardening this summer as I'd hoped, but other events have got in the way a bit (more on this coming up) so Ive been a bit too busy. Lots of weeds are out growing the plants, but these are the strong ones that are fighting their corners ; )
very triumphant fox gloves, ain't much gonna stand in their way.
my first time growing corn flowers, I love them so much.
and the honeysuckle archway is doing really well, and the bumblebees love it.
those geraniums would grow through concrete given half the chance.
a new bench that I painted, many a cup of tea has been supped here (whilst contemplating pulling up said weeds).
our Nipper's toms and strawberries look like they might actually produce something edible.
I went back to the stream in the evening and spied two adult coots sort of looking for something, so I ran back home to get the coot chick, and see if it would go back to it's mum and dad...
The next morning I went back again to see any sign of it, and amazingly, there were two adult coots with the chick in the middle, attentively feeding it in turn. Ahhhhhhhhh
I bet that chick had some stories to tell to it's mum...near death experience, then spending the day in our kitchen, ha ha!
