TUESDAY GARDEN RAKE
We've seen more breaks of sunshine this week, with very little rain.
The photo above shows dusky fatheads of French Lavender, a plant more suited to these conditions.
I like to dot old garden tools around the garden.
I bought this nice ladies fork for a £1 at a local carboot sale at the weekend.
There's been another trip to the plant nursery!
I had herbs on my shopping list, but came away with a Heuchera Ginger Ale plant instead!
It has such pretty little creamy yellow flowers.
Who could resist?
We've both had time off this week, and on Tuesday with the in-laws, we visited Exbury Gardens in Hampshire.
I'm really pleased we brought these copper-affect birds home, after seeing a pair in the plant area.
They look just the part whirling around, and should help to keep the real thing off the vegetable patch?
There's new fresh growth on the Lemon Balm which seeded itself next to a Gooseberry bush.
Little did I know what good companions they are.
