This afternoon The Little Mister and I went to a local garden centre to buy a small watering can
We came away with a watering can, lavender plants, rosemary, chives, tomato plants and a hose attachment. It was an expensive watering can!
This photo shows my bean plants growing nicely on my window ledge. It’s lovely to be able to eat our home-grown veg and hopefully we will get a decent crop.
Dad’s garden is starting to lose some of it’s sparkle and the flowers are starting to wilt and drop. This gorgeous purple hydrangea is starting to lose it’s good looks but I still think it is rather beautiful!
Dad’s vegetable patch is nearing the end of the season, some things have done really well like the carrots, other things like the tomatoes have been a complete disaster.
So, we are eating up the last few beans and carrots that have been coming through. Delicious! Here are Barnabas, Eden and Mum digging them up.
Just as well the veggie patch is coming to the end of the season though, dad has plenty to be getting on with in our house!
When asked what my photo of the day should be Dad suggested that I took a picture of this three tiered planter that is planted with begonias. It really is very beautiful and I think it is Dad’s favourite at the moment.
His garden has won a few prizes this year, but the veggie patch hasn’t done so well. The potatoes did great, as did the carrots but the tomatoes got blight and the beans have been disappointing. You win some and you lose some I guess!
It looks like a crime scene in the garden. All we need to do is get the chalk out and draw around the dead bodies. I suspect Billy is just pretending though. His eyes seem to be open!
No more sea pictures today, although we did go for a quick swim after work. It was really cold today, much chillier than yesterday, and wasn’t quite so enjoyable! It has been another beautiful day and we had a barbecue in the garden with Mum and Dad.
This allium is in Dad’s garden. I really like these flowers as they have such a structural shape. They look like lollipops stuck into the garden!
It has been a glorious day in beautiful Guernsey and we enjoyed a nice barbecue at lunchtime.
After lunch Barnabas helped Grandpa with watering his garden. I think he may have greener fingers than his mother at this rate!
Dad has been working hard to get his garden ready for North Show judging. The garden is looking absolutely lovely and even the sun came out to help things along.
The judges came around today so we will have to wait and see the outcome. Eden appreciated the beautiful flowers though.
Dad’s garden is starting to look absolutely lovely. The vegetables are growing fast and the flowers are blooming.
One of my favourite flowers are Sweet Peas and there are loads of them growing up the fruit cage. To keep them flowering you have to keep picking them. So, almost every room in the house smells absolutely glorious with the sweet fragrance of Sweet Peas.
Sadly they die quite quickly once picked so we have to go and pick more!
Hurray! For the first time in weeks we have had a day without any rain. It has generally been quite a productive day -I even bought my first baby clothes, but admittedly they were brand new and from a car boot sale but they were a bargain!
In the afternoon Mum and Auntie Cath and I managed to sit in the garden and play Scrabble. Perfect!
