Weather wise this week it has been a little grey - spells of rain with brief bursts of sunshine. Perfect for growing gardens really. When a brief sunny moment hit this afternoon I popped outside to take some photos.
Everything is looking so green and lush. The roses are out in all their glory. My vegetable garden is finally looking like a kitchen garden. The two raised planter boxes that now house the strawberries are starting to show off delicious ruby red fruit. The beds of straw and shade cloth have helped I'm sure.
Plums, apricots and peaches are dancing on the branches. They have yet to ripen and we wait patiently for them to do so. After numerous preserving disasters this year I am certain that this coming summers crop will not go to waste and I will be able to produce a good batch of jam and chutneys.
My favourite tree in the front garden is now heavy with green leaves and is doing it's job wonderfully when days are hot and bright. And the fairy garden is bursting with colour, totally overgrown and looking quite magical.
Are you a keen gardener? What is growing where you are?
