In the garden

A little tour…

Earlier this week I was looking through Instagram and came across  @creativecountryside who I started following a while ago but in the busyness of the last few weeks, Instagram has been slipping down the list of priorities…. However a few unexpected moments waiting for one of my sons, found me with my phone and some wi-fi!

Her photos and blog posts reminded that I haven’t been spending much time in the garden apart from watering which has been essential in the last few weeks and I haven’t been able to take time to stop and look and really connect with what is happening there and how the seasons are changing the feel and sense of the spaces … so I thought I’d share a few corners of our not very big garden and what is happening here at the moment….

Courgettes are beginning to get going…

The knautia and geraniums are busy scrambling through and over in every direction…

In the dye bed, marigolds are getting into the swing of summer too…

Back in the garden by the house I have had a change round this year and my favourite scarlet pelargoniums are at floor level so that….

Each year since my sons were little, I have grown mangetout (sugarsnap) peas in pots by the house…. we all graze on them as they produce the pods, effortlessly contributing to our five a day ….

Another change this year…. instead of my usual trailing pelargoniums we have trailing nasturtiums with their fiery flowers.

What’s growing near you this week?
