MY OH said I should sit and enjoy the garden but the more you plant the more work there is my best times are early morning when I see new growth each day and in the evening when our frog sneaks out to munch on snails and once I start a bit of weeding I can lose hours at a time
Girlyfox I know what you mean I went out yesterday night for a potter and ended up out for 3 hours lol didn't even realise it got dark till the solar lights came on lmao!!!!!
Today I was office bound so kept cool with fans, this evening garden pots were watered.
I've alot of sunflowers beginning to flower, ranging in height from dwarf to 5 or 6 ft tall, with colours which are vibrant yellow to burnt orange, some are multi headed. This evening, I sat, taking in the last of the suns rays, admiring them and the under planted flowers, which more by accident than design have flowered in oranges, yellows and whites, thinking, should I pick them to bring indoors or let the bee's have a feast...decided....the bee's are having a feast at present... I might pick some tomorrow...
I've been getting home from work and gardening till it goes dark. Wonderful!
I made blackcurrant jam at the weekend. At the moment 2 plants growing that are really attracting bees - Allium sphaerocephalon, and butterflies - Marjoram.
To keep cool, wear something wet - I wet my hat a lot when I'm gardening in hot weather.
A friend of mine, who lives in a hot country, keeps her clothes overnight in the fridge in one of those plastic bags you get for packing in a suitcase. She also takes clothes out the washing machine and puts them straight on
I spray my feet with the hose and then put it on mist and walk through it. I love being warm and wet, must be 'cos I'm a Pisces, or just daft. When the kiddies next door were willing I used to play splashball with them, but they tended to cry when they got soaked. They still occasionally water canon me from over the fence.
Lol KEF that sounds great!!! My LO is 2.5 and for the first time enjoyed running through the sprinkler for the 1st time yesterday!!! It was hysterical but I lose a lupin in her excitement!!!! Oh we'llwe'll
i had some tomatoes ripening on the kitchen windowsill. they have a 'cooked' taste to them now
Nice nut cutlet!!!! Sun dried anyone??
A few days like that and I could go into the sun dried tomato business
