May Day tomorrow and I've been checking what's changed in the garden. The scrawny bunch of mesumbrianthemum-type plants, which I now know are delaspermum (ice plant), have expanded to a riotous, vibrant bunch. Are't they gorgeous.
And here the hollyhock has started flowering. We had an horrendous storm Sunday morning with roof tiles blown off, the seed house listed to one side and half a tree branch torn off. Miraculously, this hollyhock was unscathed.
Of the two paraguayos trees we put in last autumn, one is bearing two fruits......well, it's a start - one each if they develop into that so delicious doughnut-shaped peach.
