and warmest on record in the UK but ended with three days of damp, dull weather here. After lunch on Tuesday I was looking round in heavy rain checking to see if the cucumbers, sunflowers, sweet corn and tomatoes that I’d planted out the previous day were okay. It’s certainly been ideal growing conditions with everything doing well and thankfully, so far, little damage from pests.
The first of this year’s Flighty’s favourites pot marigolds is this zingy one which was fully open by yesterday.
This picture of the rose Pretty Lady shows how the colour fades to a creamy white as the blooms fully open. Sadly the white dog rose flowers don’t last more than a few days but there are lots of them
On Friday I noticed this nearly ripe strawberry which I picked and ate yesterday rather than chance leaving it.
This coming week looks like being mostly dry, sunny and warm which is ideal for plot pottering which I’ll be doing most mornings.
Have a good week!
