Our garden has thrived on neglect this year. We’ve done just enough to scrape by and reign in anything growing out of control. I snapped a few photos here and there — they aren’t in any particular order which is why it looks like all of the seasons are happening at once.
I love this photo of a pea shoot. I’m a complete sucker for leaves in the sun.
Peas were a first for me this year, they aren’t something I’ve ever grown before. They only grew at all because our friend came round and watered the garden every time we went away (which was a lot!). I’ll be planting more of these next year for sure.
I was given a seed box for my birthday which contained lavender, violas, nasturtiums and calendula. I planted a whole pack of Calendula seeds and the slugs gobbled up all but one plant. A small victory.
Our sweet peas haven’t done so well. We didn’t have many flowers and those that did grow were eaten by slugs. I’ve given up on them now. The remaining flowers have gone to seed and I’ll collect them for next year.
Seeing bees clambering all over our echinacea makes me happy! It’s nearly as tall as me at the moment and there are more flowers than I’ve ever seen.
Next year I’m thinking about changing things up a little. If anyone has any plant recommendations, I’m all ears.
