garden glad


Motherwort - Leonurus cardiaca. Ready to be picked for tincture-making.

Loving runner beans, cucumbers, beets, salads and courgettes at the moment. Beans come top of my list today. The bean flowers are scarlet-beautiful, and the crop of fresh beans to steam every night...just sweet and delicious.


Jed's friend. He insisted i take this picture.

The tomatoes are looking good. Rubbing my hands in anticipation of the tomato sauces and chutneys to come.


We'll picnic at the merest mention of fair weather but the season is truly in full swing now. There is something special about picking vegetables and herbs, preparing the meal and then returning to the garden to feast...
