The flowers are blooming in the new border, a lot of the other plants will not flower until next year but I am pleased with the amount of colour and scent there is already.
The kitchen garden is doing fine, I have just planted out some brussels sprouts and purple sprouting broccoli for the winter, the grass always seems to need cutting and the black ants are back in the compost heap. There are lots of redcurrants and raspberries just about ready. The mint is still going strong, I love mint tea so there can never be too much of it.
I think I over did the calendula seeds in the herb bed outside my studio, I wanted lots as I plan to make soap with it and the chamomile. I planted up another border in front of one of the out buildings, I will be able to see it from the kitchen window.
Finally, the lavender I planted last year in front of the house is looking lovely. I am going to dry it and make soap with it too.
