Having covered the in-laws garden last week it only seems fair to do six from the outlaws, my parents. I’m not feeling too well after a week back at work. I’ve already been infected with cold, but struggle through.
My parents have a couple of passionflowers growing from pots up the wall of the neighbour’s house. It’s become a bit of a monster. I think the sheltered position and warmth from being up against the wall has helped it thrive. It ends up coveted in loads of flowers and always has bees swarming somewhere on it. My own hasn’t taken off anywhere near as well, but maybe in a few years.
The clematis is forming the shiny, silvery seed heads.
This is the honeysuckle I took cuttings from last month. It is a small leaved small flowered variety. Cuttings seem to be doing alright.
4. Sweet peas
The sweet peas are still flowering well.
A nice pale rose.
6. Water guns
My dad got the water guns out. Alice thinks they are hilarious, even if they are so big she has to put it on the floor and aim straight up to fire. One way to get the garden watered.
Last reminder that I have a copy of Dr Hessayon’s houseplant guide to win on twitter. Like an retweet to win.
Hope you all enjoy your weekends.
