    Hey Toters how are your gardens blooming? It is June and everything is growing, I hope I'll find some time to put a few pictures of my veggies soon.

    Thanks for the reminder, this year my peach tree has its first fruit, which look rather like apricots to me, I just went to see how the apricots on the peach tree are doing & the storm last night has knocked them all off

    Rescued what I could, apricots for breakfast

    No, its too sugary for me, I barely ever eat fruit, but the type of peach* that tree was supposed to be produces & apricots are ok for me in limited amounts because they are low in sugar



    *Peche de vigne, a small peach tree traditionally planted in vineyards that produces a small but intensely flavoured fruit.

    Lovely to have fruits I wish I was successful but we are limited for space so I stick to greens . I managed to grow four carrots lol loads of kale , rhubarb ah ok so that can be my fruit I guess and I will make jam , I can't not it's the process of making jam wrapping jars and gifting them ..I take my son into the countryside and we pick from the trees blackberries , apples and pears , lots growing in the wild here lovely !

    Beautiful. Loving your hanging baskets. I have never seen a style like that before, with a trellis type top. I would love to plant more but the damn rabbits and deer eat it all. No fence to keep them out.

    I like Itatian Courtyard Gardens.
    Little gardens within a garden. It's also a mobile garden as the pots get moved according to my mood.
    I like dimensions as the garden gets higher and higher, tall plants are wonderful to greate another dimension in the garden.

    I like to create a different garden each year. Because it's mobile I can do this.

    Love your garden, Frances, and the places your mind takes you. That is stunning work.

    OMG that is glorious. I'm in love. I particularly like the beautiful wrought iron holders. My mom did a lot of gardening, in ground and in pots. Wonderful colors.

    This is my garden Frances. Not so many flowers, but a lot of small trees.
