The veg is doing quite well despite the heat as Hubby is religiously watering the garden every other day.
Look at our beans! We have two varieties growing side by side, so have red and white flowers. They are almost at the top of the wigwam, though we have no ‘earrings’ yet.
The onions are beginning to swell:
and I’ve found my marbles!
Can’t see? Here’s a close up
Again we have two varieties growing side by side, and have marbles on the cherry plants.
The pathetic ones we tried to grow from seed have taken off and are doing quite well in the potato patch!
On the flower side, our lavender is doing really well, though my pictures aren’t too good as the grass is so dry and the plant colour hasn’t come up very well.
But look at this: isn’t it beautiful?
This is our In Loving Memory rose bush and we have two other buds on it.
The Ancient Mariner and Peace are also about to have a second show.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

Oh, the joys of summer! Lovely roses.
This is our first red rose on this bush taken from a couple of angles. The Peace and Ancient Mariner are yellow and pink respectively, and their bloom were big!
I left my onions alone this year, and they have a beautiful flower on them. I heard they can be eaten as well. I love my garden. Yours looks nice.
I did your three word Challenge, and you are welcome
