Hurry up Broadbeans!

I want to eat you, then dig you up, and start extending the jungle bed. Removing the gravel, which will go on our drive. Re using the wooden boards to edge the bed. Darcy is worn out, he has been chasing flies in this hot weather! Daft dog.

This trough of bamboo is then going to move...........

to here. Thats our garden waste bin.

 I have some plants ready to go in, my beautiful Phormium, which has been growing along nicely.

My Butia, which really needs to come out of the pot, although it is growing, I think it will romp away once in the ground.

I have 'won' plants on Ebay! Its amazing just what you can pick up from there. I still have some other plants down by the greenhouse that I can put in here too.
As for the rest of the garden , well it is flourishing and loving the hot weather.

 a different view  up the patio this time. Yes the water pipes are still there. We have had glorious weather and have had a number of barbques which we all enjoy.

Our eldest daughter could have moved into her own home with her boyfriend in the next couple of weeks. Very exciting, but also sad. I have been so lucky to have her home as long as I have, so I'm not complaining. She has asked for help with her garden and requested quite a few 'tropical' plants!!!
Thats my girl!!!

Until next time, take care!


  1. Very lush. It all looks wonderful. I seem to grow weeds best. Its very disheartening. Still I plod on. You must be thrilled K is interested in gardening too. Carrying the torch for the next generation. xx

  2. Oh I love broad beans, but can never seem to find them in the shops here and I don't have a garden big enough to grow any.
