Some cooler temperatures and rain this past week, especially over the last day or so -- there was a heavy rainfall warning for yesterday evening, so we skipped our time at Trimble Park, did a quick check-in on the garden, and then moved up to the house to settle into the lounge.
|Last week was sunny and hot enough to dry marigolds in my backyard --|
here is my daughter's rabbit, Gizz, testing them for flavour.
|This photo is fuzzy, but I had to include it because I was so amazed at the nasturtiums --|
last week they only had one or two blossoms, and this week, they're a riot of multiple hues!
|The wheat is looking bedraggled now, but it's getting so close to harvest that I think it'll be Ok. |
The heads are beautiful and coming out in their namesake colours -- Utrecht blue, Black Einkorn.
|The flax is so tall! I'm astounded by its loveliness and vitality.|
|It's in full flower now -- right on the mark, or perhaps a little ahead of our hoped-for timing.|
|The extraordinary heads of the 'Utrecht Blue'|
|The hazel stick continues to do so well! And we were convinced that hazel wouldn't sprout from cuttings....|
|Evidence of last week's raid on the Chinook by little thieves-in-the-night.|
But maybe the eagles got them, or the owls? because it didn't seem that there had been any new damage this week.
