Button and flowers....
Sorry, but I just love seeing the flowers in my garden! It's fairly buzzing with bees and insects now, and the swallows swoop low to catch them too! I haven't been able to do as much weeding this last week as I've had a sore back. But everything is so exuberant after such a slow start.
This is a new bed, doing well in it's first year! The lupins were from the garden of a friend so were quite large and well established. The fennel has been there a while too. But all the rest are new this year. This was the old strawberry patch.
Ahem, see what I mean about being a bit out of control!
Ooooh but I love the scabious! It's SO pretty and delicate!
And the big blousy poppies
And Jacob's ladder in blue AND white.
And a few photos of Madam Button.... here she is on a mission - time for lunch!
And here she is on the compost heap, heat from below and heat from above! And yes she IS sticking her tongue out at us! Ha!
And on the bench. She's modelling a new tail (not really but there's a bit of old pipe on the bench that appears to be her tail!)
And this year is a good year for the rhubarb! I have half a freezer full! No time to make jam or chutney at the moment...hopefully soon....
