The pink hydrangeas at the bottom of this picture were blue when I bought them and have flowered blue for the last three years – a great combination with the orange lilies. I shall have to give them some strong medicine before next year.
Rather pleased with the artichoke harvest. I know they are very small, but I am hoping to cook them and eat the hearts. I cropped the first runner beans yesterday and we are eating french beans too.
Cooking artichokes! Now there is an art form.
By the time my daughters were four and five I realised that it is not so much the artichokes as the Hollandaise that matters. An elaborate way to get veg into a child, but great fun.
