dans le jardin II

Can it really be three whole weeks since my update on our wee garden? We've had a good deal of summer rain so everything is looking lush and a tad overgrown. Oh handsome man of the house we need you back with your green thumbs and weeding ways....

So the tomatoes have gone crazy in the hanging pots and I spy flower buds all over, the hydrangea is well and truly blooming, as are the mystery pink flowers and the marigolds; snowpeas are still being picked and eaten, green beans almost ready; cucumbers and beetroots are growing oh so slow and steadily; sweet peas are climbing and garden peas have sprouted; so has the lettuce, chives, parsley and basil; we continue to gather rocks and tiles and broken china for our garden path; and eat those healthy dandelions in salad too. Oo la la! a growing garden makes one smile!

Tell me - how is your garden coming along?

  1. Your garden definitely looks lush and lovely...sadly, with all the work on the house, we have not planted a garden at all this year...but maybe this fall I'll get some raised beds ready for planting next spring...

    ...we do have some wonderful new friends supplying us with fresh veg from their garden though...

    ~Have a lovely day!

    1. Oooo purple wax beans sound wonderful! How about some lattice fencing or even the side of a crib?
