Mark - you have a fine erection there....
Howard - Lovely flowers! My favourite combination in our garden comes about in spring and is a combination of greater stitchwort, red campion and muscari. Got lots of hedge woundwort at the moment which is fabulous for 'carder' bumble bees.
Fine indeed and amazingly organised I must say too. You guys have made great progress.
I'm well behind on my plot this year after a combination of successive things going awry. The back garden at home has become a 'walled' kitchen garden whilst I clear and level the plot at the lotty for next year ahead. Most of our onions rotted away through the prolonged cold damp wintery weather this year. All is not lost there however, as we should be OK for potatoes. We've done well for rhubarb so far and should do well from our mini orchard, assorted currants, gooseberries, and other berries.
Glad you like the flowers Karl. We live in a modern 'compact' two-up-two-down town house on a hill. There's five to six feet between the front door and the pavement which was just roughly landscaped by the builders. This get full sun, so with this unused municipal space, we created a raised bed herb garden on one side of the front path, and on the other side, put some turf down to make a wild flower meadow, 2ft x 3ft. There's a mix of things in it. At the moment the Welsh Poppies, Campanulas, and Fox and Cubs are up.
