After the rain this morning I ventured out with camera in hand and rattled off some random shots.
Oops, not this one, it is my dress pattern, I hope to get it cut out this week.
Apple Blossom, complete with hover fly. I was hoping that my "bug hotels" would bring them in.
A Purple sprouting broccoli, almost over but a picking for later. I have two other plants still producing but this heat will do for them.
My new rhubarb patch, I will not pull any this year. I do have some more plants that I grew from seed and am eager to try them, again next year.
Rocket Potatoes, in their buckets.
Tall peas just about to start to climb.
Cambridge Favourite, about to flower.
Wild Strawberries, not only in flower but with some fruit forming.
Tulips, alas the wind and rain have taken their toll.
Two of the many pots that I have dotted around the garden. Once they go over I have more coming on to take their places.
This is a poor shot of a little miracle. I bought a young Apple tree from Poundstretcher, reduced down to pennies as it was so late in the year. I dug a hole and popped the very scanty root ball in. Then after back filling and firming it well in I chopped it down to 18" and gave it a good soaking. Just above the graft there is a new shoot emerging, fingers crossed that in time this will become a step over tree. If it is successful I will try some more next year, I had them in Tydd and they bear an amazing amount of fruit, because the sap does not have to climb far it just flows along.
And finally a naughty tray of cookies, oats, coconut, choc chips and cranberries. Still warm they are tooooo goooood.
And, to heap coals upon the fire, there are two cakes in the oven, apple, pear and cinnamon.
Even worse, there is cream in the fridge.
