The forecast for earlier in the week was accurate as it rained from Monday evening right through the night and all day Tuesday. It was gentle rain which is more beneficial than heavy downpours, which often damage plants.
The crocosmia, or montbretia if you prefer, is now flowering providing a vivid display of flame-orange against the bright green sword-like leaves.
I’ve started picking a few ripe, juicy blackberries with lots more to come.
All seven oca plants are now about a foot tall and look like this. I’m looking forward to seeing them flower.
It looks like being dry right into next week so I’ll be plotting on making the most of it.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
