The garden today


Only a few weeks ago I was rhapsodising at signs of life returning to the garden . . . and now I am cutting back hard as that life gets out of hand! Cranesbills are sheared to make way for their later-flowering cousins, and the bright ox eye daisies in the long grass have turned into horticultural bullies that I cut down to give other plants a chance:


Off on holiday again on Tuesday, so the big question is: will the blackbirds, magpies and squirrels leave any ripe gooseberries or redcurrants for me?


It will be interesting to see how much the raspberries and blackberries ripen during my absence:


The dead laburnum can stay for a bit – it’s a useful launch pad for the tits bound for the feeders – but I have planted a white clematis beside it. I’ll see how it goes.
