We had a walk round and looked at the newly sheared Alpaccas, they have such long slender necks, it is a good job that their heads are so neat, and boy are they pretty.
Dawn and Hubby have done an amazing amount of work in such a short time. The poly tunnel is well on the way to being full and the raised veg beds are looking very fecund, even the new Asparagus looks well established. Must be all that Alpacca poo, I am so pleased that I brought some home with me. Dawn tells me that it seems to act as a slug repellent as well, I will be keeping a good look out.
On a previous visit Dawn gave me some Oca's to plant, all have grown well and I thought you might like to see what pretty plants they make.
The leaves remind me of shamrock, but I am looking forward to tasting the tubers.
These white bells have popped up here and there, and very pretty they are.
The Lupins were a gift and they are doing well, you can see the flower bud in this one.
These were a also a gift last year, from my next door but one neighbour, his garden is very well kept and his plants well looked after. In contrast this is my view every time that I go to my garden.
I have some posts and trellis panels to get up to screen it.
My pots of Duke of York and Sharpes Express are growing well.
I have several Aquilgias growing around the place, this one has pink on the tight buds but they open out white, I aim to collect seed and hope that it comes true.
I managed to find 2 pink fabrics at Dawn's and picked up a few more from Cross Hands, Hilary had a big bag of scraps for me as well. I will share them once they are pressed, I have not taken them out of my bag yet.
My first priorities were walking Ben and tea, lots of it.
Oh yes, the blog title, well the sun did shine and I was up a mountain.
