I spent the entire afternoon yesterday weeding my long border and around this tomato soup echinacea.
I got such a lot done but realise all that rain will make the remaining weeds I didn't get to yet , double in size very quickly.Still it was just what the garden and our fruit crops needed so all good really.
I have gift lilies in a vase inside and lilies in the garden.( a storm is coming so they may get trashed ) The yellow one is Lilium oriental belladonna lemon and the other in front is Gluhwein .
The blue hydrangeas love the extra water.
This Pink Delight Vireya rhododendron is a cutting grown one in a big blue pot outside the dining room door
R spent some time weeding one vege patch yesterday so the courgettes don't get smothered - they need picking daily.
Beans just ready now too.
My successions of plantings of Tom Thumb lettuce are just enough for constant salads. They are crisp, with a little heart - that's how I like lettuce.
The threatening rain still hasn't arrived ( and it's 11 am ) so we may work in the vines this afternoon after all.
