Echium, Three Cornered Leek and Courgette

19 May

1   Along our road are a couple of Echiums in flower so that you can see how big and beautiful they are. (I showed you our baby ones a couple of days ago.) They hum with bees!

2      Down the lane there are masses of Three Cornered Leeks. If you look carefully, you will see the triangular stems.

3   I have planted our Courgette out today in mushroom manure to help them grow. I have protected it with a cane cage to keep the wind and the cats off.

    I have never seen a cane cage before, they look like a great idea.

      They are! They allow in light and rain but filter the wind and keep out the cats. They are new to us this year so we will see if they keep their promise! 🙂
