I often catch a glimpse of grasshoppers but don’t often get a good look at them like I did with this one yesterday morning.
The Gardener’s Delight tomatoes have started ripening and I picked these yesterday. These were plants that I was given unlike the Golden Queen ones which I grew from seed. The fruit on these are still green but fingers crossed that they will turn yellow soon.
I posted this colourful raspberry ripple gladioli photo on my Facebook page during the week which attracted a lot of comments and likes.
I thought that the three dahlias that I planted earlier in the year had all succumbed to slugs and snails but one, the Caribbean Sunset, managed to survive and produce this summer sizzler.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
