So many pictures on one day!

I popped up to the much neglected plot no 2 this lunchtime to do a bit of watering and the apple blossom was looking stunning. Of course I didn't have the camera with me at the time though... A visit of a few minutes stretch to about an hour when I discovered quite how well my 'crop' of dandelions and ground elder was doing. Much hacking with a hoe later... Hopefully they'll die off in the sun.

Anyhow, it was too good a chance to miss the blossom so I returned tonight with the camera:

I continued with my 'summer's here' theme and planted out a couple of courgettes (Defender and Goldie). Not sure they'll survive, but I've got plenty of backups.

I also put up another net for more climbing beans and peas. Now the more observant of you may notice that the poles aren't straight and it looks a little 'home made' but I'm quite proud of that fact. I love making it out of the old sticks from the privet from plot no 1 (partly because it reminds me of just how big that hedge was!) and tying it altogether, then crossing my fingers that it stays up in the wind and when the bean and peas grow up it.

Suitably rustic!
