I love being in my garden!
I spent yesterday morning pottering in the garden and thought I'd share some photos with you. I snapped them quickly with my phone which was of course in the pocket of my gardeners pinny!!
The new raised bed made from planks destined for the tip as a neighbour is moving house. I've planted a pumpkin and sown some lettuce. In the pots, lemon balm and mint.
The raised beds containing herbs, onions, shallots, potatoes, broad beans, celery, celeriac, beetroot, sprouts and sugar snap peas. I fashioned myself a hose hook today from an old wire for hanger - it will keep the spray gun clean. I have laid some old terracotta pot shards to trap the slugs.
Another raised bed containing pattypan squash, butternut squash and yellow courgettes. Around the corner are three more green courgette plants.
In the flower bed, a wigwam of runner beans, some pea sticks supporting purple mangetout and four outdoor cucumber plants at the back. This patch gets the most sunshine.
Two large blue pots with blueberries and some troughs with lettuce, pea shoots and rocket.
The two stunning clematis growing through the Japanese Quince. I'm not sure which ones they are, but they are wonderful colours.
A white clematis growing up through the lilac in the chicken run.The flowers are the size of dinner plates!
A rose sprawling along the fence in amongst the loganberries and raspberries.
This tea rose looked so gorgeous with the water droplets on it. It smells of Parma violets.
