I’ve only been to the plot a couple of times since last Tuesday and, as always, found flowers and plants to enjoy looking at and photographing.
After a slow start the runner beans St. George are now doing well, with most of them having reached the tops of the canes with plenty of flowers on them.
I thought that I might lose the tomatoes given the state of them after that area became waterlogged some weeks ago. I fed them with comfrey liquid feed a couple of times which I’m sure helped them recover. There’s now fruit on them so all that’s needed is some warm sunshine for them to start ripening.
The Rosebay Willowherb has grown up around and through the log pile as it usually does. The flowers looked at closely have a small white cross in the centre of them.
Among the more colourful cosmos are some white Purity which are always pleasing to see being one of my top favourites.
The one surviving sunflower Mongolian Giant has now flowered. I’ll leave this for the birds to enjoy the seeds when they form and hope that a few self-seed so that next year one or two grow into rather bigger, and much taller, plants than this one is.
The knee high sunflowers Musicbox continue to delight, and here are some of the bi-coloured ones.
The forecast is for rain tomorrow and Tuesday which will be welcome, with the rest of the week hopefully being good plotting weather.
Have a good week!
