It’s late June

Most of last week was dry, sunny and rather too warm for my liking so all I did was to water when and where needed then have a potter round.  Early yesterday there was some welcome rain and it was much cooler.


Despite what I said recently about the raspberries not faring too well they have fruited and I have been picking some every few days.




The nasturtiums are the last of the  annual flowers to show, and should now continue right though into the autumn and the first frosts.

These are the variety Tom Thumb in a mix of orange, red and yellow flowers.



Some of the sunflowers Musicbox have already flowered although they’re not even 12″/30 cm high.

Next week looks set to be mostly dry and cloudy with a more comfortable temperature around 20 C/70 F.

Take care, and have a good week!

    Lovely raspberries and the flowers are looking great too. I’ve been picking raspberries as well, but it’s not been a great year for tayberries and strawberries. I’m overwhelmed with cherries though! CJ xx

    I love to see the sun but I find I can’t cope with the humidity of the last few days. Old age, I guess! 😉

    The beginning of your harvest, without a doubt!. Those Raspberries look yummy.

    I always wondered about the alternative name for ma-in-law’s Nasturtiums; she always called them Tom Thumbs. xxxx
