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 look!
The Sweet Pea's are at their best. I bring home a bunch of them at least twice a week. The zinnia's and cosmos just keep on growing. The anemones are slowly opening their buds, while the dahlia's are in full bloom. The flowers of the dahlia'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!
