more thyme please

Whilst enjoying the lovely weather I noticed how my thyme was attracting butterflies and bees.
So guess whats on my shopping list. Its only the second year of ownership and I just love it.


Ive been away (see summerfete), this is what I came back too!



I'm sure you will agree that with all this lovely sunshine, gardens are really thriving this year, be it lupins, foxgloves, geraniums etc..

For the first time I have made two wigwams for my sweet peas and one for some morning glory.

More aquilegias

Clematis~ ville de lyon





The veg patch is romping away too.

Lots of leafy things so far, and a few slugs!!
We ate some pakchoi last night, which was good.




And finally look what I picked this morning!!
Its sat on my window ledge and smells so sweet, I am now going to eat it!


ps. it was sweeet!!!!
