…..till May be out.
It’s certainly out now, and what a wonderful display we have had in Somerset this year. Temperatures are rising nicely for the first month of summer however the easterly winds are keeping the temperature a little on the low side meaning that the more tender plants are needing to be covered at night.
The roses are all coming back and budding up very well even though they were all defoliated by the severe weather we received in March. I am always amazed by Mother Nature and the capability she has in recovering no matter what is thrown at her. The first rose in bloom as always is ‘Canary Bird’ a large bush which grow as a climber.
The borders are preparing us for the summer and we are reaping the benefits of our the late spring plants and early summer blooms.
Our vegetable garden containing early potatoes, runner beans, sweet corn, garlic and onions are all growing away well. The large greenhouse is now stocked with twelve varieties of tomatoes and two cucumbers.
Finally, I thought I would show you a novel way of using a flower pot saucer, Mum and the two children seem to be enjoying themselves.
