    I know you cant stay--December bloom day

    wax leaf silktassel Budding, Stinking hellebore 'bearsfoot' Budding, Tree Collards Growing, Jacob Hellebore...
    Chilly, rainy day, but very nice to sit and chat with my daughter who is just home from college. Still no killing freeze, and the winter loving plants (hellebores, silktassel) are cheerful. A few summer annuals are still in bloom, or, in the case of the wild dagga, just beginning to bloom. I miss...

    Bloom day in October comes during that colorful collision between late summer blooms and early fall color, as well as the start of the rainy season after 3 months of dryness. We are still harvesting summer vegetables, with zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant and corn finally ripe. I’m giving the ...

    "Rain" is in the forecast for tommorrow night.

    This is kind of funny. If we actually do get some then we wont break the record of 51 consecutive rain-free days. I’m going to be watering tommorrow anyway. We are only expecting about 0.1 inch, than back to sun on Tues.

    Hedging your weather bets.

    For all of you in the same boat as me, dry/hot weather-wise, I think I found a way of making it pour cats and dogs. All you need to do is to harvest your garlic and find a shady spot in which you place it to cure. Then, decide to air out your car, by leaving all of the windows open a crack, and...

    Weather was diabolical yesterday though thankfully we are not affected by the flooding as in some parts of the country. Am hoping it hasn’t affected my sister, down in the west country, too badly – news shots showed water up to the bedroom windows in some villages. Fortunately they ...

    Finally. I check NOAA it said we got an inch over the last 24h. Friday afternoon storms, then rounds that woke me at 2:30 and 3:40. The lawn had started from brown to flecks of green already!

    May night mare of Black spot and masses of roses turning brown

    Yep it’s still here and it is heart breaking. I have the Cotton seed mill but it is just too late. All the leaves are falling from the MAY QUEEN and she looks really really sick. New Dawn was a wash with blooms (still think they sent me a CB instead as she has not bloomed but x 2 in 3 years...

    Corsican mint and Tomato & Chilli Pots garden
    Needn’t have bothered scurrying round to take cans of water for all the direct sown seeds this evening, it’s coming down in buckets and the water butts are full once again. Purchased more Multi-purpose; John Innes no3 and Ericaceous compost today – 14 bags in all – I have ...

    …. and so do the rivers. All the water meadows along the river Thame are huge lakes at the moment, the true course of the river only discernible by the snaking line of trees and bushes. Water lies in pools on the bean fields, rushes down the ditch on the westerly garden boundary and has tur...

    Welcome, rain!

    The gardens are so happy. I look out my sliding glass door at several of the perennial gardens and see the clumps of recently sprouted or broken dormancy plants, growing larger right before my eyes! The only drawback that comes to mind is that the rain wears out the blooming daffodils sooner than...

    Hardening off stalled

    Conservatory propagating garden
    Tomatoes, capsicums and squashes have been stuck indoors for the past 3 days – just too rough and windy to go out – even though before that they had been out for most of the day for previous 2 weeks. The earliest planted really need a third pot-on but I’ve nowhere to put any mo...

    …came late afternoon sun, though still a chilly wind (yesterday). Decided to do more mixed border 2 renovations which soon worked up a sweat. DS2 rough- turned most of it about a week ago, avoiding any plants. After the softening effects of the rain it seemed like a good time to fork eve...

    All around my House... garden
    … but at least it is raining! March was rather mild (and dry), which is OK, but April really is too cold here in Belgium. Temperatures have drop since last month, but at least we have some rain. Not too much rain, it even might be more, but not the dry spring like we had already a few yea...
