I've just edited down the random pretty photos I took two weekends ago at the plots and then made collages, so naturally, its hammock time. Though it is maybe too hot for me...
I can hear so many birds and can see one searching for a tasty nugget in amongst the winter flowering box hedge. There's also a little child two doors down running about singing/shouting and it sounds rather funny: 'Bah bah bah, haha!' it goes... Oh now someone is chasing her and trying to eat her! Haha.
Hope you enjoy these little snippets of Lottie life....
So yep we aren't so much in between signs here (remember 14b still needs one) but instead we have my old one which is starting to fall apart and a new much prettier one. I adore the marigold on the shelf :) The purple flowers are cornflowers (yep, I always assumed cornflowers were blue!) and lastly a sweet little pompom dahlia ready to come home.
We start off with a courgette flower, they are doing well and we have been eating baby ones in our stir fries - yummy, and my favourite way to eat them, unless it's in a cake. All the spuds are completely dried out now and home with us or in the shed in a hessian bag. Arty black and white of the garlic and a close up of the sun through a sweetcorn leaf, they are such beautiful plants.
14b dahlias and sunflower
They speak for themselves - gorgeous and coming down with sweet nectar :)
14b cosmos and dahlias
Rather perfect cosmos, clock on it to make it larger - the stamen is stunning. These particular dahlias are almost too red to look at, seriously they hurt the eyes in the bright sunlight but are a delight inside.
Tumble down sheds from the plots nearby
I took a short and careful walk about the place just looking for interesting sights or to be blown away by someone's plot. I found a lot more run down stuff than fabulousness but hey, it's pretty in it's own way I think. The last photo is pretty much one of the most perfect and productive plots there is - spuds ahoy and the healthiest looking onions, oh and barely a weed in the vicinity.
