The weather has been quite miserable here of late… heavy rain or at the very least, drizzle and a sudden drop in temperature. I'm sure it's doing the garden the world of good, though I'm longing for sunnier days.
The foxgloves are starting to flower, we chose white and apricot varieties… I'm sure they'll look wonderful in full bloom. The iris and granny's bonnets are still going strong, despite being beaten by the rain. I also found this little bell-shaped lilac flower in the border today… does anyone know what it is?
The apples have started to appear on the tree… they're tiny at the moment, about an inch across! We had a family of bluetits nesting in the box at the end of the garden, though I think they must have fledged over the past couple of days. It was lovely to hear their little cheeps while we were tending to the vegetable beds.
