Some treats from the garden
Our 4 ladies in their coop with their pin up!
This is amazing :-)
New seat cushions I made for our little outside seat. I need a cup of tea now and a good book.
The stained glass at Blatherwycke church was so beautiful. I’m not sure my phone camera really captured it, really worth a visit.
Two little cucumbers in the greenhouse.
Things in the greenhouse.
More from Blatherwycke walled garden.
The purple and green plant is tree spinach, tasted delicious - I must put some in my garden next year. Apparently it will spread itself around the garden a lot so once you put it in you will never be without it!
I attended a night-time tour around Blatherwycke walled garden which is currently being restored. This garden has a really interesting history.
I thought the sign for this bargain corner in the garden centre was amazing! :)
I may have bought too many plants…oops. I got a grafted cucumber plant for £2, it has lots of tiny cucumbers on it already. I will take some better pictures of it in my greenhouse.
The allium display may be coming to an end int he garden but the seed heads are so beautiful just left in the borders or as cut flowers.
Last night I did this little display of alliums and rosemary.
Sweet peas form the garden. Most of the ones I planted out have done really badly this year (why?!?) but fortunately this variety has flourished and I think they are so pretty.
They have the added bonus that they smell amazing!
Organic, home grown Sunday lunch… boiled potatoes, spinach and broad beans with butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Simple pleasures.
Picked fresh from the garden! :)
A summer evening stroll by the river.
