Garden Update

We’ve had a lot of rain here in Kent over the last few days. Flash downpours have soaked the flowerbeds and the lawn so I have been keeping an eye out on my over loaded Greengage tree, picking up the fallers and making sure it’s propped up enough so it doesn’t snap under the weight of all the fruit.
It’s very exciting as it didn’t flower last year (it’s first year) now this!
(a few fallers on my Foley china saucer). They are just about ready for picking.
(showing off my beautiful hand painted Foley cup and saucer – possibly by Wileman & Co.)
Anyhow, back to the garden. MUSHROOMS are growing in the lawn!
So before I could mow the lawn, I had to pick them and dispose of them.
I think I’d better keep it a bit shorter from now on!
Happy Hydrangeas

      Bountiful is the aim, need to put a little more thought into what I grow though!

    WOW! Those plums look fabulous–will you make jam? And I always love hydrangeas and yours look superb–that color!

      I’ll probably use them up in crumbles and swap with my neighbours. It’s possibly the first time I’ve had produce to swap! Also the first time I’ve cut Hydrangeas and put them in a vase, I love them too 🙂
