Had the day off work, but couldn’t leave the house, so didn’t accomplish much. I sat out in the garden reading for a while, tidied up some pots and compost, watered everything. Washed a load of laundry and got it on the line quite early. Other than that I’ve been lazing about watching True Blood and drinking strawberry Ribena.
Lots of nice stuff in bloom right now, several things budding and a few things giving up the ghost (some violas and nasturtiums.) Wish I could think of something pale primrose yellow for the cutting garden that blooms about now through September. I suppose in general I could use more things that make good cut flowers.
Finally got a gold single flower. It’s magnificent
Fuchsia 'Carmel Blue' Blooming
Surprisingly large flowers with pale pink uppers and medium violetblue petals.
Sweet Pea 'High Scent' Blooming
Indeed heavily scented and cream-to-pink.
