Nature always wins


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.
