A week of heat and the slugs are gone, my dahlias finally started to get stronger and fingers crossed I will have some bold flowers soon.
In the non-sluggy news hubby started to rebuild the shed and it will be beautiful, once it’s finished I will share some photos of before and after. Dreaming of some nice Farrow&Ball colour for the exterior.
When the old shed came down we discovered few old metal posters and are pondering how to use them in the garden, fence art or table top perhaps…
The bug was of course helping at all times mainly by getting in a way and trying to sneak off with tools.
The late summer crops are getting there, we are enjoying beetroots and rocket at the moment are are awaiting beans, tomatoes and apples. The apple tree has got less fruit than last year, much less in fact but the apples look healthier and the whole tree happier. I am relieved that I won’t have to process vats of the fruit every day.
The flowers are loving the sun, part of the hollyhocks survived the snail army, calendulas are invincible and the wonderful verbena has grown really tall. The bees are in a borage and lavender heaven – if you want to attract wildlife than get some of these flowers and add lots of yellow ones, I reckon we need a bee hive!
