A Little Harvest.
No sewing news today as my other model is at school; photo session tonight I hope of a re-worked skirt for my not-so-little Lucy. Instead a quick garden catch up for you. The cherries are slowly turning red on our huge cheery tree and the odd one plops onto the duckpond beneath. I love the way the sweeping branches bow and arch toward the murky waters below, the odd one dipping its toe in for good measure.
We have eaten yet more of these gorgeous Tayberries and as the juice dribbles down my chin I can't help thinking that perhaps the soft fruit season is my favourite of all. Of course, I do love plums and damsons and then there are English apples in all their glory. Oh I just love fruit I guess.
Overall our garden has had a bit of a quiet patch the last few weeks on the flower front, but the next flurry seems about to burst. These foxgloves are beginning to make way for day lilies, swathes of feverfew and lady's mantle, and bright yellow loosestrife.
Courgettes are coming thick and fast now
and Isabella helps to crop them, along with her broad beans (from a little plant she grew at nursery) and parsley.
It's all quite nice really.
What's good in your garden right now? x
