Well, this week it is the plums! In the past fortnight the fruit has ripened and the tree is heavily laden with ripe fruit which is also being enjoyed by the wasps and bees, and some creepie crawlies. And other than that the garden is just being ‘garden’.
1.The Victoria Plum tree – I had several for breakfast, I will have to freeze, and of course I have to make jam.
2.The Conference Pears are swelling – all four dozen or so!
3.Even the Cornus Mas has produced little fruits!
4.The Japanese Anemones are falling over themselves to please me! When I come out into the garden in the mornings I can’t quite believe what I am seeing. However, they are starting to take over and some will have to be given away.
5.There is more pink in the sedums which are colouring next to the variegated dogwoods.
6.And the patio bed is just being garden! It is lovely to sit here in the evening and looking over what is becoming an established and lush garden.
I look forward to seeing more gardens on The Propagator and hope you are all enjoying the burst of colour and abundance at the end of August.
