Our little garden

I'm ashamed and a little embarassed to say that I am always envious of all the wonderful gardens I visit on my trips to people's blogs. I don't have green fingers at all, not in the slightest. Despite that I was out in the garden this weekend planting my flowers trying to brighten things up.

This is one of the lovely geraniums we bought, such a vibrant and vivid red against the blue of the brickwork.

This is my favourite flower in our garden, a bed of beautiful orange lillies that come back to life for a few short weeks each year.

I have, against all odds, managed to grow some veggies too, even if some were inherited from my Dad's greenhouse!

This wonderful green lettuce is almost ready for picking,

and the tomatoes are well on the way.

I can't wait for these little fellas to get big and juicy. They have some way to go yet....

These peas I can say were proudly grown by my own fair hands from seed, although I must say that this one plant in particular looks like it belongs in 'Day of the Triffids'!

I just love fresh peas - I really can't see many of these making it to the table!

I think your little veggie garden is wonderful. Mine is so far behind yours and I don't think we will ever catch up. Our weather really put a damper on the garden this year.

Whenever I've grown peas there really hasn't been enough to cook. It's much better to just eat them whilst in the garden straight from the pod. x
