A while back I wrote a post Growing an Apple Tree From A Pip. We have just picked a bucket full of apples from the tree. To think I doubted my wife when she said she would grow an apple tree from a pip - mind you that was nine years ago!
Probably not the best apples in the world but my wife made a lovely apple cake the other day.
On a walk from our home, this morning, I noticed how many of the wild hydrangeas are still quite colourful. I guess years ago someone must have planted them but they are now wild and free.
This one was a bit droopy but looked in tune with the blackness of the road.
A couple more hydrangeas.
Nearby is a small river gurgling along happily to the sea.
Now back to my garden.
The recent heavy winds and rain spoilt many of our plants. Most of the dahlias came crashing down despite being supported.
Never mind though - we've still got lots of apples!
