During last week we have had far too much rain in the cottage garden. The climbing roses have been doing their best to hang on, but today I cut them back. With luck and if the weather is kind, we may see another flush in August.
The geraniums (pelargoniums) have also taken a battering but now, at last, I see some flowers.
The vegetables have suffered even more. The next picture shows the runner beans this time last year. Notice there are lots of flowers!
Now compare this year’s photograph… too much rain, not enough flying insects to pollinate the flowers. Flowers? What flowers. We are still waiting.
Ivy on the balcony.
Feverfew is abundant just now. It has a lovely, musty smell.
Have a great week fellow bloggers.
