A brief spell of sunshine...

It's not been very summery the past few days! On Wednesday we had some extremely heavy rain. However the sun came out a bit late afternoon so I took a few snaps of the garden. I've been so busy taking photos I've not had as much time for gardening but I have got more growing than this time last year. Above are my six tomato plants in their growbags. In the pots next to the beige duck I have a pepper and a chilli plant.
We made a quick trip to B&Q for a new bolt and latch for the back gate. I spotted this striped ceramic globe and had to have it for the deck :)

Since the New Year I have been trying to think and act more positively. One of my gurus, Susan Jeffers, is very fond of the "Laughing Buddha". I have several buddhas now and I can't look at them without feel cheered and encouraged to appreciate life and its many gifts. Here is my garden buddha by the pot pond.

In these growbags I have dwarf runner beans and broad beans grown from seed.

My IKEA box is a blaze of colour. I love the pillar-box red geraniums so much.

My salad leaves are going well. I've been picking and eating them for a couple of weeks or so and they still keep producing more leaves.

I like the ceramic ball and the bigger one on your deck. Do you have a gazing ball in your garden as well?
