I find it so odd that a garden can grow and grow but it’s not until you look back on pictures that you really notice just how much. It’s all happened so quickly that I’ve been overwhelmed by the progress so I’m jumping in with random pics of the last couple of months before it all gets too much. This HERE is the last “stage” back in May.
I’ve only commented on a few pictures. You don’t need a massive essay on a garden I go on about all the time. As it stands, right now we’re eating courgettes (zucchini) like our lives depended on it (for the first time ever, the yellow ones are bigger & better than the green). The broad beans are just coming in, which makes me happy (I love them!). The mange tout are over but the runner beans are in flower, waiting to transform into my favourite ever beans. Beetroot and carrots are being pulled up and added to salads and roast dinners. I’m also finding a plethora of wildflowers have cheekily wedged themselves between the rows of my veg (viola, nemesia, snapdragons). They won’t get pulled up though, they’re too pretty.
At some point this week you’ll probably find me in the kitchen, standing over a pile of courgettes, trying to decide whether to make chutney, cake or both.

Wow! Awesome photos! Your garden is doing way better than mine 😋Lol
Thank you! It’s the best time of year for the garden. In a month I’ll have lost my fave flowers until the spring comes around again.
Wow! Your garden is looking better than ever! 😊❤️ xxx
Lots of rain combined with a much needed tidy!! 😀 xxx
Rain? Gosh… we haven’t had rain for weeks and weeks and we’re only a little way along the coast! The grass here is brown everywhere… 😆😉💙💙💙
We had two torrential downpours. Both of them where just at the right time, you know, right as the grass is beginning to die and you’re getting really fed up of draining the bath to water the veg…!! Think it’s just the southwest that had the rain. The roads even flooded briefly! Bonkers!
English gardens are always so lovely. Such a beautiful array of green and lush flowers.
It’s all the rain!! 😀 😀
