Just an update on the laissez-faire minimal intervention garden progress.
As you can see things are going prolifically in the ox-eye daisy meadow / mown path department.We had no idea this lot was sitting waiting to take over.It's difficult to convey just how amazing this is all looking with no assistance whatsoever, swaying drifts as far as you can see.
Bless the campanulas, they need no attention whatsoever.
We had a rare if not unheard of combination of apple blossom and calm storm-free weather, this means the fruit has set in glut proportions.Still many a blight twixt now and the fruit bowl so it will be a long-haul to get this lot to harvest.These are on the espaliered Cox's Orange Pippin which covers and hugs one side of the house.We planted it ten years ago and it's known as Nanny's Tree because the Tinker bought it for us in memory of her.
We have multitudes of honeysuckles all over the place.Early flowering, late flowering varieties. I can't resist the scent and the blossoms are starting to work their magic.
Bloomin' neighbours, nosey as ever.
Even buttercups have their place, those welcome splashes of bright yellow
With no mowing the clover is feeding our neighbour's bees all day long.
And finally, here come the elderflowers, just a question of picking the most cordial moment.
