I’ve only been to the plot a couple of times during the past week. On Monday I put the climbing bean canes up in readiness to sow some seeds later in the month, and on Thursday I just pottered as following two rather wet days it was too soggy to do any plotting. Not surprisingly after a warm weekend and those two rainy days everything is growing well, including the weeds.
The California poppy (eschscholzia californica) plants from last year are flowering as are the self-seeded poached egg (limnanthes douglasii) plants although I’ve yet to see any bees on them like I usually do. In fact I’ve seen few this year so far and no bumble bees.
The perennial cornflower (centaurea montana) is another flower that bees like.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
