It’s stayed wet but between the showers and occasional downpours the weather has been warmer and things are growing… growing.
We’ve reached the planting window. The poppies have been stripped by the rain so we’ve stripped them from the long and triangle beds, topped off the soil and rotavated one and will do the other.
The long bed is now fully seeded and plugged via a Heath Robinson structure with corncockles, straw flowers and cornflowers.
A lot of the dahlias are out but more are due to go in this week.
On top of this the runway borders, as the terracing is known have cosmos, cornflowers and tobacco plants – 170 in total.
Climbers are in – sweet peas, black eyed Susan’s – and still the plants keep coming….
I’ve even decided to plant some mobile tomatoes. Watch this space for that one.
There’s a fair bit still coming to it’s peak…
And Dog…. he’s doing his morning yoga…
Yes he’s still helping.
