Bees and lizards – it must be summer

A honey bee on the lavender flowers….

The apple crop is looking good from this tree we planted as a small sucker about 6 years ago.

This is one of the female flowers we were hoping for on the sweet corn plants.

These scabious flowers grow as a weed in the garden, but they’re pretty.

These Californian poppies aren’t weeds – we planted them, and I love their intense colour.

Work in the garden today: tying up tomato and cucumber plants, pinching out side shoots on some of the tomato plants, especially the Languedocian ones which just want to grow in all directions and have some quite large tomatoes on them now, taking out the mangetout pea plants and planting out some lettuce seedlings given to us by a friend.

  1. Your photos are stunning, really lovely. I had to spend a few hours yesterday hacking back a huge lavender plant. It probably wasn´t the right time to do it, but it was overtaking so much and I had put off doing it. Broke my heart though! Your sweetcorn looks good. We only planted our seeds a few days ago but they´re already sprouting. I love this time of year in the garden!
