We had more welcome rain this week and I was out catching it in my bowls and buckets. Small patches of brown lawns are turning greener. So what’s still growing in my garden this week?
The Cone Flower or Echinacea that I featured a couple of weeks ago is now in full flower with several heads on this one plant.
Yesterday I picked the one melon that grew on my plant, it was getting wet on the ground despite trying to raise it off the soil. I didn’t want it rotting. I shall leave it in the sun to fully ripen. Not sure of the variety, it may be a cantaloupe.
I have a second variety of cucumber growing in the greenhouse. this one has a prickly skin, but I’m unsure of the name.
The Hydrangea bought back in April is continuing to flower. It is still in its pot. I need advice on when I should plant it out. Now that we’ve had some rain, or leave it until Spring?
I have successfully grown several Agapanthus from seeds given to me by a relative. These will be over-wintered inside and planted out next year.
Last photo goes to the final flower from my Velvet Queen (red) sunflower. Despite the drought they have flowered well.
