Garden in over drive!

Well this combination of torrential rain and then days of glorious sunshine, means that everything in the garden seems to have doubled in size over night!
I promise the compost bin is in there behind the cosmos and fig, somewhere, getting to it is definitely challenging
Beautifully delicate poppies and cosmos
This made me laugh,we used our own compost to fill this new bed.  Wasn't sure what to do with it, the shrub there had been badly damaged in the snow, so it had been pruned right back but we know it will be huge again, so didn't want to put any thing permanent, so a few foxgloves filled the gap.  Then before we knew it, it was full!  Of butternut squash and tomatoes from the compost!!!
Will see if they fruit?

Agapanthus are doing their thing.

and my herbs are doing strong in the green house, basil, parsley and coriander, theres more on the flat roof, so I think soon we will be eating lots of salsa Verdi ;-)
