Not a bit like flaming June on the allotment this morning, it felt flaming cold and there was a very slight shower of rain. I actually wore my winter hat today to combat this unseasonal start to the day. Tony, my next door neighbour came over to the allotment on his way to the gym, he gave me a couple of really nice Pak Choi plants that he had spare. I haven't grown any of these this year, I think I had run out of space. Tony asked me to give a message relating to bowls to a mutual friend. I watered my pots and some of the seedbeds, as we have had very little rain for the past few days. I harvested some Gooseberries, Strawberries, and some Onions and spent the rest of my time weeding around the Runner-bean wigwams.
In the evening I spent some time watering my pots in the back garden, the Blueberry fruits are swelling up very nicely now and the tomato plants look very healthy indeed. The lawns, back and front look great after their cut yesterday and the new grass seeds I planted in the front lawn have taken very well. The grass looks so beautifully green. I am overwhelmed with the beauty of the blue rose I purchased for Margaret several years ago. It is covered in big beautiful blooms and I just had to grab my camera and take some wonderful photographs. I must remember to give the roses some rose food when I get some time time to spare.
These are two pictures of a single red rose, blooming in our garden on the other bush that we bought at the same time as Margaret's Blue rose.
