Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
UK- The lavatera is ten foot high and dripping with huge pinky/mauve blooms. The pale pink rose has climbed about twenty foot in the old pear tree. The plum tree (deceased) is hosting some exotic looking mushroom fungi. The lilac poppies just starting to bloom.

The ladies mantle is spilling out of every crack in the paving. The mexican orange blossom is perfume personified. The campanula is a sea of bluey purple. The apple tree blossom just showing pinky white now. The castor oil plant is heavy with black berries.

The geraniums are basking in the heat. The petunias are wilting at a rate of knots in the heat. The marigolds are lunch for the snails.

The jasmine is filling the midsummers air. The ivy is rampant as ever. The ageratum is dried and shrivelled, something went wrong there.

The rosemary is full of flower and sniffable. The lavender is gorgeous and darkest blue. The curry plant is exotic and makes me sneeze. The thyme is invincible. The mint is barely contained, the pineapple mint is abundant and the morrocan mint is catching up fast.

The squirrels are burying nuts in all my pots and digging up the crocus bulbs. The wood pigeons are feasting on the huge cherry tree down the way.

All is well in paradise.
