How my Garden Grows

The nasturtiums seem to have run amok but aren't they beautiful!

and my runner bean experiment has been a success. W e are picking some every day.

They are growing in a small box but they seem to like it and it's been a wet summer so they are happy enough. Feeding now so that we get plenty more and the bees love the flowers too.

and the sweet peas too. These don't have much scent though :(

All in all I'm pretty pleased with my little corner of the Oonahverse this year

Blooming Lovely

I have an orchid on my kitchen sill.
I leave it be
Water it once a week
It blooms at will
It seems to like the western light
That streams in muted through the seed-pod screen
They seem destined to be
And I am content to let people think was deliberately...
