its all coming up roses 

Except we didn't plant roses but if we had they would have come up.

The garden transforms itself every day. The flowers are going mad. Big pink things have appeared everywhere. We dug out some of the annuals that have gone over and replaced them with perennials and thats looking good.

The veggie garden is going great too. We have had carrots, lettuce, 2 sorts of onions, spinach, rocket, courgettes, peas and beans so far. The broccoli is nearly ready. The herbs are fantastic with the parsley, basil, mint and oregano standing out right now. We should have more coriander soon too.

The path area is looking great. The thyme is spreading nicely after looking sorry for itself to start with. (its great in cous cous too) The forget-me-nots will be great next year too.

The lawn has a few weeds in it but I am going to dig them out soon but apart from that its looking great.

The tomatoes and peppers are looking good too. We have tiny little peppers and tomatoes forming on the plants so it wont be long before we get to eat them too.

My favourite are the sunflowers. They must be getting up to around 8 or 9 feet tall. I had to construct a system of guy lines to stabilize the canes they are growing up. All from a little tiny seed.

Either gardening is very easy indeed or we have a natural talent.
