After a long interval, here we go again with Just Three Things. In case you’re unfamiliar with this, I write about my short early morning wander down the garden, noticing three things of interest and three jobs that need to be tackled. Usually takes me about five minutes. Simple as that, followed by breakfast.
The lilies started in early July and most have now finished, but this one is about to bloom, thus extending the season by another two weeks. I think it’s either Lilium Baferrari or Isadora. I’ll likely know better when they bloom fully.
My favourite Begonia last year. It looks a bit leggy, yet the two-tone orange/red gets me every time.
The Clematis Montana is growing well, considering its been there only since May and it’s in a pot. While the plant gets sun from mid-afternoon, the pot is in shade. Two boxes ticked.
Just three things to be done:
- Braid the onions for storing. (Marion).
- Tidy up after harvesting broadbeans. (Me).
- Prune the crabapple tree. (Me).
Monday Motivation: Consider planting something today. A vegetable or flower, an idea, resolution or even a smile!
