Garden Snippets

I've just been looking through my kitchen window, contemplating.
My best laid plans have not worked out this week... so my trip to Babbacombe will have to wait.
My poor mum has had such a nasty bug which has really 'knocked her for six'. She's on the slow road to recovery though.

The blogging too has had to take a back seat! So has the garden...
I quickly whizzed around early this morning to remind my self what needs doing...

1. Dead head this beautiful rose which grows against the house. It's been fabulous and it is full of bud. My pics don't do it justice.

2. Keep an eye on these! The resident pheasant ('Miguel') sat on them the other day but I think I saved most of them. I found the seeds in an envelope when I was tidying the lounge. They have been there for a few years!!
(Although Dear DH reckons they are a pink poppy.
They look more like Escholzia, to me!!)

3. Get these planted! I sowed these really late...Carnations and a variety of herbs.

4. Remember to tie these sunflowers.They grow so fast each day!

5. Watering!! My herbs need it...and the Sweet Peas and Nicotiana.

I still have cowslips in bloom and in bud!

Finally, at the weekend,there is a display of History and Flowers in the village church.I hope cameras are allowed ;-)

It's always good to catch up on the village gossip ;-)
