It’s been another sunny, warm day so I made the most of it as the forecast for the coming week is for mostly unsettled, wet weather.
If that’s right then this will probably have been the last time that the flowers will still be looking as good as they did this morning.
The Michaelmas daisies (aster novi-belgii) look wonderful –
The love-in-a mist that I mentioned last week have now flowered –
The nasturtiums are still blooming profusely –
As are the pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites –
And here’s one of the last small, palm sized, sunflowers –
I collected some nasturtium seeds, picked some more climbing beans along with the last blackberries, grapes and raspberries.
I may well leave the sweet corn plants alone and pull them up late winter or early spring. That means the only major job left to do before the plot and myself take a break will be to pick all the beans, then add the plants to the compost heap and take down, clean and put away, the canes.
Have a good week!
