Six on Saturday – 25th July 2020

So our wash-out summer continues here in the west of Ireland. I would cope with the rain if we just had a little bit more sun! But still the garden grows.

  1. First this week opium poppies. These poppies come up every year in the vegetable path and are loved by bees (and me too!).

2. Next, another vegetable plot flower is Calendula. These are ones my daughter set from saved seed.

3. Some broccoli ready to harvest, not the biggest heads but hopefully we will get some side shots too.

4. A meadow brown butterfly. The netting is not to keep these butterflies out (they lay their eggs on grasses) but their cousins, the White butterflies.

5. We have had the first ripe tomatoes from the greenhouse.

6. And finally this week some sweet pea. Only just coming into flower.


Thanks to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday

    A fine six this week… I love the poppies, too. Mine just finished (I have mauve and red, which sometimes cross, but I try to keep the colours separate.)
    Envious of your sweet peas, a rabbit ate mine. 😦

      Yes my daughter (who doesn’t like tomatoes) complains about the smell when she goes into the greenhouse.
