Phew!

Well, after the downpours, the blistering heat! This weather is quite exceptional and we are searching out the shady areas of the garden, quite a change from the usual pattern of longing for sun.


Because of the recent soaking everything is growing well, the peas heading skywards and just coming into flower.
They are an attractive colour, although I'm more interested in the crop and hope it will be prolific.

  1. Had an old packet of pea seeds left over from a few years ago when I got fed up of birds pecking the small plants to pieces. Planted them this year. Two came up. Kept them in greenhouse. Loads of pods filling out nicely.

    1. Satisfies my Yorkshire heart greatly that a fine crop of peas is shaping up from two old seeds!

  3. Lovely, it is nice to see so much pretty. Summers are not always that wonderful here.
    I am right in the middle of a wildfire, smoke, wind, heat, more smoke lots of smoke and fire.

    1. Wow, Parsnip, your photos of the fire look beautiful, but the reality must be anything but. I hope that nothing will come too close to you and the charming four paws.

  4. What pretty pink roses, and I love the purple stems in the first two pictures - no idea what they are! I hope you get a great crop of peas, nothing better than home grown. We are growing a few snow pea plants, the first time, and they have a few flowers. Fingers crossed.

    1. This is the time of year when the garden does it's best to put on a really good show. We are eating well out of the garden and I hope that your snow peas will also flourish. The long stalks of flower are my delphiniums, grown from dark blue seed but coming up this lovely pale shade - don't ask me how, I've no idea!

    1. I don't do a lot of sitting, there is always something to do - but when I'm weary I lie flat out in the sun for a while!
