Self-seeded Calendula and aster with ripe and ripening pears.
It is a challenge to catch the pears at the the right time to pick them before the wasps get to them. A good crop this year.
Joining Cathy and her joyful meme: In a Vase on Monday
I am completely replanting the bed behind the espalier pear trees. Everything has been taken out because the ground elder and marestail had taken over.
Looking from North to South
I dug it over, took everything out, and dug it over once a week for 4 weeks in the hope of getting every bit of weed root out. I saved all the bulbs and have replanted them in a completely random fashion and planted new and old irises
A rogue sunflower which grew in the pot I had the tiny fuschia (Jollies Nantes) in.
I have also scattered seed from Nigella, calendula, cerinthe, aquilegia, foxglove and purple loosestrife.
It will be fun to see how this looks in Spring.
The daughter of a friend of mine is just starting her garden and liked my scattergun way of creating a border, so I have collected seed for her to try it out.
I found this You Tube clip
made some little seed packets out of a Gudren Sjoden catalogue
I loved making these, I like the way they are in the shape of little flower pots.
