What’s going on in my garden this week?

There is so much growing, all really under my nose until I grab the camera to detail the goings-on.passionfruit flower2-Lilibet StanleyThe passionfruit flower is beautiful and weird all at the same time.

passionfruit flower-Lilibet StanleyI love the shapes of the the stamens and the juxtaposition of the yellow pollen with the beautiful royal purple. It is a shame that the  flowers are only out for a day before they have gone again!

pumpkin flower-Lilibet StanleyThe pumpkins are also flowering in their radiant yellow glory.

banana-Lilibet StanleyThe new banana trees are growing. It will be great to try the different varieties that we have, if we manage to get any fruit off them. There is a long way to go yet!

corn-Lilibet StanleyThe sweetcorn that is in the veggie box is getting there, now that will be delicious when we can have home-grown sweetcorn.

Salvia-Lilibet StanleyThe Salvia that I planted last September is looking very cottage-like and true to a cottage garden we are mixing the flowers in with the produce. Apparently my hubby said, it was the best place to plant the bananas right in with my flowers.

geraniums-Lilibet StanleyThe geraniums that my neighbour gave me a few months ago are looking very pretty and genteel.

Until next time.
