A Walk Around The Garden

A Spring Bank Holiday Monday walk around our ever changing garden, its fascinating to watch the new growth.  From a tiny seed to a feast fit for a King.

Broad beans now showing its beautiful purple flowers.
Lollo rosso cut and come again lettuce in all its glory.

Strawberries, flowering and starting to fruit.
Parsley, which we just cut as we need.
Peas, slowly climbing in preparation for their pods.
Purple sprouting broccoli in its early stages.
Cabbage, well established and now covered with netting to stop the pigeons from having a feast.
Runner beans, early days but well set.


Fruit bushes as a trial for container gardening.

A glimpse at our cottage garden where we like to sit.
Hope you enjoyed your visit around the garden.  My apologies for the lack of tea and cake.
See you soon.
