Flower Tower, Beans and A Poster

We moved house many times when I was a child and everywhere we went, I remember the pan stand came with us. It is with me now and I do keep some pans on it but I keep it in the garden and plant up the pans. This year it is particularly pleasing. Mum would have been delighted! The little terracotta cat at the top was a present from my Mum to Daughter No 3 over 30 years ago.

Nasturtiums and Lobelia

Our beans are flowering – hopefully each flower will result in beans to eat.

We saw this amusing poster in the office section of a shop the other day and they let me step in to get the photo.

Harvest, Olive Tree and Montbretia with Cornflowers

1   We have harvested the last of our broad beans today – that feels both good and a bit sad. It means that Summer is almost over ……..  They were delicious and I have frozen some for later.

2   I pruned the Olive tree at the start of the summer (as advised) but was too hard on it and thought I’d killed it. Imagine my delight when I found these beautiful little shoots today! There are thirteen all together so it’s alive!

New shoots on the olive tree
