This is the post I was going to do on Sunday. My thanks to everyone who commented on the one I did do, Quagga’s Rear View, and the previous Sunday’s A pleasure no more.
I had a much better week as I was on the plot several mornings, the sun shined a few times, I got a glimpse of the blue tits out front at home for the first time in ages and saw a few Speckled Wood butterflies.
Even when the sun hasn’t been shining it’s a sunshine plot thanks to the glorious sunflowers. This is the first Giant Single to flower, which is about nine feet tall with a flower the size of a large dinner plate.
There are two multi-headed varieties the red and yellow Pastiche and the rich reddish brown Earthwalker. Both of these are about five feet tall.The insect you can see on this one is a green lacewing.
Down at ground level there are red and yellow nasturtiums.
Plot neighbour Joe asked me how my grape vine was doing and when he looked reckoned that it’s doing better than his. That was surprising as I do nothing with mine whereas he’s an expert grower!
