Gertie’s Garden Diary … August 2017
At the beginning of the month Teds helped in the garden and found colour all around.
From today, 17.08.2017, those colours are still there … and more.
Hellebores are re-blooming … very strange for August? …
… and there are beans, blackberries and green [as yet] tomatoes. We have had two meals from beans so far … they are delicious; and we ate some of the blackberries cooked with some chopped up apples from ‘Uncle-man’s’ garden … tasty!
I wonder if the tomatoes will redden whilst we are in Normandy and whether there will be any left when we return: may find out how to make Green Tomato Chutney! Pretty , blue Geraniums are still scattered about Blue Hill.
A small bouquet of GG flowers I sent back to Somerset with son, Jann, shows a grand variety of colours still around the garden …
Garden Spiders are blocking the narrow pathways , despite being urged to spin along sideways!
… and of course, there is Peace.
