More allotmenting….

I’ve noticed that my allotment doesn’t look like everyone else’s…. it’s more of a riot really…

Anyway I press on. Some of the sweetcorn have two cobs coming: so exciting! The pumpkin is growing lots of pumpkins everywhere. I’m slightly in awe of it’s productivity. Rasps have finally grown a bit more. Still no courgettes – I have bought more compost. Beans are coming. The weeds are also doing very well. Artichokes are looking beautiful, and I even have an aubergine coming (pic to follow). Feeling slightly overwhelmed now. Anyway – more pics of produce soon.

Hampton Heat

It was soooo hot. And what’s more it had been even hotter. The rose tent was unbearable – I tried to take a few snaps anyway. But my absolute favourite garden was the Brownfields Metamorphosis – I loved the combination of rust and soft planting, structure and movement. Definitely inspired! Other things to like were the red helenium, the dark blue agapanthus, the kids garden, the urban rain garden, extremely expensive (and unaffordable) greenhouses, and some lovely water features…. here are some highlights:

 

Harbour / Shore / Sea

Ahh the sea, and all it’s shades and temperaments. And the colour is soo blue, you can’t even imagine it, especially if you come from the UK where the sea is steel grey, and moody. I love the changes, the details of the water, the people who live and work in and on it, the tourists who are warmed by the lovely weather, and softened by the salt. A few pics from Rhodes, Greece.
