It's been a while since my last post. I haven't actually been out in the garden, I've been suffering with "policeman's heel" for a while but after a busy few days of almost constantly being on my feet lead me to having my worst ever bout. Have been shuffling around like someone twice my age. Thankfully it's improved no end over the past day or two.
Today I braved the dank weather and grey skies and had a mooch around the garden.
I am beginning to wonder if the squirrels know something we don't and are preparing for a really harsh winter. Either way, they have trashed the garden even digging massive ditches in the hanging baskets. I'll say no more on the matter.
Time to celebrate the great colours in the garden.
|Pink lemonade blueberry, from Thompson Morgan, a new addition to the garden. Just need a trip to the garden centre as it needs ericacious soil.|
|Jalapeno. both plants that I've bought in doors have fruits ripening. As with chillis, I hear you treat them mean so I water only when it looks sorry for itself. We shall see if it lasts to the Spring. I'd like it to.|
