I haven’t forgotten that I’ve got an allotment and BLOG, it’s just that we’ve been so busy with friends visiting and family gatherings, I’ve just not been able to keep up with it all! Regrettably I’ve not been able to do any more on the allotment, but have managed to clear some more dead sweet peas from the garden, plant some daffodils and get some bargain perennials for £1 each at a local nursery!
The passion flowers have been fantastic this year and there are lots of ripe fruit on them now. This one was already partly open when I came to photograph it, but I’m not sure whether it had split open, or something had helped it!
The Clematis armandii which I thought I’d killed after flowering back in April is actually in flower this week! (Look closely!)Is this global warming on action I wonder?
