I took a lot of photos today.Walked around looking for interesting things to shoot.The first ripe blackberry (the others i have seen ripened weeks ago, my hedge bramble is lagging behind them).I found a recipe for blackberry wine, but alas i will have a few ounces only not the needed four pounds!!
The seed grown busy lizzies have their first flower.A beauty in pink, like a watercolour painting with wet paint running on wet for all you artists out there.
The Erysimum has flowered for a second time after looking quite tatty and slug/snail ravaged.
It was a rainy, thundery day so i did not linger long outside.The wind made it quite chilly to be outside in a tshirt.
My summer seeds are still dormant beneath the soil..I collected some evening primrose seed pods today.They will join the others.I got some pansy seeds from work to grow on to make nice plants before returning them.When to plant them?Should i wait untill January time??
The tomato plants and Dahlia blew over in the stormy conditions overnight.I uprighted them and put some heavy stones on trying to keep them upright.
I have some seeds left to plant, borders to tidy, and compost to seperate...Two days off left before night duty.
I need some sleep and rest before i will go out into the garden tomorrow...
