We have been very short of rain and are having to water every evening to try to keep things going. Despite that, we think our beautiful new Hazel may be dying. It has some crisp brown leaves but we will live in hope.
2. Mum’s Pan Stand. I grew up with this pan stand, full of shiny pans, in the kitchen. I inherited it some years ago and we too kept it in the kitchen but then we moved back to Cornwall and there was no room inside the house for it. I put it outside, painted it black and found various pans and containers to plant in. I love the oranges and blues of this year’s display.
5 The Edible Garden is overflowing! We are eating the lettuces as fast as we can, using the Pansy flowers, Nasturtiums and Borage blooms in G&T ( and in salads!) and the herbs in everything! The Olive tree has tiny buds!
For others in the Six on Saturday, see the Propagator’s blog. Read the comments to discover gardeners all over the world.
I bought myself some beautiful new earrings today from a lovely shop, Fannie and Fox, that I discovered on my walk through Penryn.
In Redruth Market on Saturday there was a new stall – the Year 4 pupils from our local Primary School had been busy making Strawberry Jam and Red Onion Marmalade. They were a delight to talk to and were very good sales-people.
I visited the event a couple of years. If you’d like to read about it, here is the link.
It is always a delight to watch the birds at the feeders and today there were a number of baby ones, Blue Tits and Great Tits loving the peanuts and the fat bell.
I’ve been playing with glass again – bought a small lamp and took out the plain glass and replacing it with scraps that I put together with the foiling. I’m pleased with the result.
