|From a few days ago, a tiny snail on a |
Lark Ascending rose after the rain.
|The Angelica I planted out last May has had an eventful few months. Basically it has|
gotten munched into oblivion by slugs (aided and abetted by the constant rain). I tried to
save it by removing the mulch and replacing it by sand, but the one leaf left kept on getting
munched. A week ago I dug it out, gave it a good wash in case there were critters or eggs
lodged somewhere, and put it in a pot in the court. A week later, new vigorous leaves!
I put it in a very large pot and cut off the now leafless branches.
|A tomato plant just popped up on top of the rubble pile, lol|
|Balloon plant (platycodon)|
|The Bee Bar|
Always frequented, they love this spontaneous
forest of borage, nasturtiums and some colza.
|Borago and nasturtium|
|Bee on borago|
|I planted a few snapdragons, yarrows and catnip I had grown from seed.|
I hope none of these is yum to slugs because then we're done. Also danger
might be coming from the roaming cats...
|Some more love-in-a-mist soon!!|
|Lemon vervain is getting huge :D a little yellow though.|
|Balsam herb flowers :)|
|I finally went back to the garden centre where I got his one and wrote down the|
name: Salvia nemorosa "schneehügel". It always has flower spikes
attractive to small insects.
|The largest apple in the tree|
|Bumblebees love nasturtiums|
|The first gladiolus!|
|Among the grass, nasturtiums and lobelias|
|Second flush of Lark Ascending|
|Bit of a mess among the roses. Got a lot of cornflowers though.|
|After cutting the willow, the raspberry jungle is growing like crazy!|
We got a few raspberries on last year's spindly canes (that's much more
than last year) so I am expecting a nice harvest next year.
|This nasturtium is an incredibly deep crimson impossible to photograph.|
