It rained last night so everything is dewy and perky in the sunshine this morning - perfect conditions for botanical photography. I managed one shot of the kids' veggie patch before my battery died. So here are the carrots, beets, radishes and silverbeet. Noone eats the radishes but the kids love to grow them. We will thin them out soon and each pick two each. Then we have a competition to see who can grow the largest, knottiest, ugliest radish of them all. By January they are revoltingly huge, last year the winner was Sam with a radish almost as big as his head.
Now that Loula is finally coralled the peas are popping up unhindered. In the background is the tin foil spider on its wire web - made when the sparrows of the neighbourhood were treating the bed as a avian smorgasbord. Weirdly, it has worked and they have found somewhere else to forage.
Once the batteries are charged I will be out there snapping the purple bearded iris, aquilegia, sedum, stipa, bonariensis .... the list goes on ... rest assured, even without photographic evidence, the garden is popping right now.
