As forecast last week…

was rather wet, especially on two days,  which meant that I only got to do some plotting a couple of mornings.  I planted out the rest of the tomatoes and cucumbers Marketmore, and sowed more dwarf French beans, which means that I’ve now just about finished planting and sowing for this year.

The annual flowers that I don’t dead-head or save the seed from mostly flower from year to year such as the Love-in-a-Mist (nigella damascena).

I wonder if any rose coloured ones will appear among the white and blue ones.

The collomia grandiflora have certainly been a talking point with various people asking about them as they don’t recognise the flowers.

Several ordinary poppies have appeared this year although I haven’t sown any for some years.

Yesterday was breezy and dry so I dead-headed the rose Pretty Lady and rough cut the grass paths. I’ve been picking plenty of strawberries, and it looks like I’ll be doing the same with the raspberries before too long.

It looks like being warmer next week, but with more rain on a couple of days.

Have a good week!

    Your plot is productive. I have some nigella in my garden that volunteered from last year. The pods are enchanting. The collomia are quite a focal point. Enjoy the strawberries!

    The nigella are so pretty, one less job for you when they self seed from year to year. It’s certainly much warmer here today, though we’re forecast our fair share of rain again this week.

    There’s a certain familiarity about your weather week at the moment. Natural watering could make all the difference to outcomes if there are not constant deluges. xxx

    I was going to ask what the flowers were as well, they’re lovely, such a pretty colour. Lots of deadheading here too, and removing sodden petals. A brief reprieve today though, so hopefully I’ll get the grass cut later. CJ xx

  6. Ooh, you have white nigella – they’re pretty!

    Don’t you love it when long forgotten seeds germinate and surprise you?

    Loving all your blooms, especially those that just pop up! We’ve had lots of rain but are due for a drought now, I loath those. Good that everything is now planted
