The garden is a bit of a mess again with weeds everywhere, litter, various balls in the beds and toys all over the space. I can't bend over yet to fix it, so it's all going to have to wait until after the baby is here and I can blitz it.
In the meantime, it's been lovely to see the splashes of colour emerging again after the boys activities meant that almost every flower was knocked off it's plant despite my shouting at them.
This bright red hibiscus is right outside my living room window and cheers me up no end.
A little florist near me often has miniature roses displayed outside her shop. I couldn't resist a lilac one but when I planted it, the roses turned a dull pink. The new ones that have come are lilac again which is nice.
This fuschia was dripping with flowers which all got knocked off by the boys a branch at a time. The few twigs left still have pretty flowers coming through.
This fuschia had dried up and I thought it was dead. On the off-chance it might survive I planted it in the back of a bed and forgot about it. My complicated plan worked and it is full of flowers again.
The tomato plants that have been there all summer are now full of green tomatoes. A few have turned red, but I suspect that the rest will stay green. These are nice added to vegetable curries for a slight tang.
I'm itching to get outside and tidy up, but I'm going to have to wait a while yet.
