the future is orange
I did so much planting today. I started by planted courgettes,and squashes in the greenhouse border - 6 courgette 'Bambino', 2 courgette 'Black Beauty', 2 Turk's Turban and 2 Patti Pan squash 'White Custard'. The Turk's Turbans are only for show but the others are for eating. We can't get enough courgettes in summer!
Then I moved on to planting in the West Garden. The West Garden has definitely turned orange this year. I have kept the white border on the way in - just to lull people into a sense of false security then bam - orange!
I love seeing all the empty pots after a good bout of planting - a great sense of achievement!
I am also radically re-arranging my garden ornaments. I felt that some areas were too confused in orientation. The urn beside the pond has moved and so have some other bits. Hopefully it will all look better in the end.
And what absolutely amazing weather. We had dinner in the garden again and the boys just played and played and played outdoors. Fabulous.
