Gooseberries to pick and to top and tail.
Spuds to harvest - a job for a Murphy!
The dead cherry tree is down,
the wood cut and split to store and dry.
The various citrus trees are loving this weather.
The 'Meyer' remains the best cropper.
After my gloomy predictions about the pear trees one of them seems to have hung on to a reasonable amount of fruit.
My neighbour had quite a task to keep the pots watered while we were away.
( But it will be my turn to water her HUNDREDS of pots when they go on holiday next month!)
It is especially nice to be in the garden at the end of the day. The temperature is comfortable and the light very beautiful.
The stipa grass catches the light and moves gently in the lightest breeze.
I've cut back many of the early summer flowers
but other plants are just coming into their own.
Only the lawn is feeling a bit parched and dry and fed up with all this sunshine!
