While I can hear the thunder in the distance and rain is lashing against the windows, I write this post. At the same time I am having a look at the photo's I made in our garden yesterday. How bright & happy
all the colours
The Sweet Pea's
are at their best. I bring home a bunch of them at least twice a week. The zinnia's
just keep on growing. The anemones
are slowly opening their buds, while the dahlia's
are in full bloom
. The flowers of the d
ahlia's keep amazing me. Some are simply huge.....and all those colours :-)!
Meanwhile the plum tree is full of deliciously looking purple plums
, but I cannot reach them! I tried shaking the tree, fetching a high ladder, climbing the tree itself, but to no avail. If you have a suggestion how I can get my plums out of my 12 meter high plum tree, please let me know. The thing is, I would love to make plum chutney, but now the birds get the plums before I do :-)!
How are your tomatoes
doing? Mine are literally rotten
! The leaves have wilted and the tomatoes do not even ripen. What did I do wrong? Is is all the rain that fell? I would welcome some advise on how to threat them. There goes my multi colourful salad, tomato soup and passata......
Wish you all a sunny weekend!
