Just pictures

As I'm tired and haven't anything I feel like writing about.

Campanula


The first runner bean has set. I adore runner beans.


Lavender


Swiss chard comes in wonderful colours, bright red, pink, yellow and white.


The grapes look promising don't they. They usually rot before they ripen however, I only keep the vine from sentiment (cutting from my mother's vine from many years ago) and because it shades the greenhouse nicely.

A wonderful garden - I guess you have green fingers.

Any plant I touch, dies. A slow painful death.

That's really sad, Geena. So why did I laugh when I read it?
Must be the way you tell 'em!

Love the look of the grapes - we are thinking of buying a grapevine to have in the greenhouse; this might just be the encouragement I needed!

My greenhouse is very humid and the grapes need a drier atmosphere in the autumn to ripen without rotting. I should also thin the grapes out in the bunch, but I'm too lazy to do that without a guaranteed result. They are easy to grow, but need care to grow really well. I think you'd be good with that.

The bean's my favourite - it almost looks rude with all those fabulously loud flowers and this little green weiner bean with a shrivelled flower on its tip! Lovely quality photos.

mm. what is it probing? Looks more clawlike than phallic, fortunately.
