I know I've done a lot of moaning about the weather - and it's still raining, thundering and lightening - when I looked around there was a lot flowering in these warm and wet conditions.
This year, the Bird of Paradise has excelled itself. Starting out with one blossom in year one, three in year two, there were at least a dozen this year.
The lilies went in in the Autumn, as did the hollyhocks grown from seed that are behind them. I wonder if they'll flower this year.
It is too wet to turn the soil in the veg patch, so nothing is in yet....a source of great frustration to Gonzalo next door. By now, his rows and rows of potatoes would be well advanced.
