a pretend primrose
pepinos which will probably never ripen
snowdrops emerging now the privet hedge has gone
the very last of the cornflowers
the rocket bed finally self-seeding into the garden
raised garden bed for tomatoes, currently growing broccoli and lettuce seedlings, cuppla lupins and beetroot and radish seeds.
other raised garden bed with emerging broadbeans, lettuce and kale seedlings
somewhat rickety raised beds, one featuring newly erected teepee skeleton for peas and beans,
the other for rhubarb yet again transplanted.
the pittosporum which was destined for the chop and cunningly decided to let tomatoes grow up through it. The tomatoes are self-sown and continue to provide me with vitamin c as I graze the garden.
the path leading back to the house being weeded and the chives clumps split
hellebores emerging subtly beside fence painted 5 times with engine oil
artichoke and Steve's brass razoo
jerusalem artichokes from self-sown plant
plants on table in back porch
Steve preparing solstice sausage sizzle
Pharaoh Dog waiting patiently
finally food and an elegant drop (with elegant sauce bottle)
and a new book to read from the library, after Sandrine kindly gave me the first in the series for my birthday. I have also put a library hold on the book Jackie Morris mentions today - Court of Lions. All in all a very pleasant short day. Now I think I'll have a look at the Dr Zhivago dvd.
