Nasturtiams are blooming! My Ikea box has really come on in the last week and I was thrilled to see some blooms appearing.
This metal bucket has really turned out well. The geranium is flowering beautifully and its leaves are so pretty. I also like the dark grass in the neighbouring pot. Just peeking out from behind the pots you can see a clump of stray lobelia that self-seeded itself from last year. It's a beautiful deep blue. There is another by the back door but my photo of it came out too blurred to post :(
My curry plant is blooming. I love the smell of it especially after the rain. We have certainly had lots of rain this week. It's been quite warm too so everything is growing like mad. Sadly that means the weeds too! My next door neighbour on one side is elderly and has more or less given up on her garden and it's full of weeds that seed themselves merrily in our garden. I am plagued with those mares tails weeds that are almost impossible to eradicate. Apparently their roots can go down 7 feet! I am dreading our return from the US as I know the weeds will be rampant all over the garden.
