Stories from a happy garden...

 

image








Once upon a time there was a huge flax outside the window.
image





Then it was cut down .....


image








And the cows came and began to eat it .... so it was moooved !
image








Once upon a time the broad beans sagged from the heavy frost.
image








But the coral lettuce stayed bright and cheerful....
image








...and so did the mizuna.
image

 






All the Adelaide people thought the kale had aphids ......
image

 






But when the sun shone, all the aphids melted away!
image 








In the glass house, though, the fennel twirled and danced.

Love the twirling fennel and the melting aphids, great to see your garden Kate.

Oh, it looks cold, but the fennel twirls are lovely! We always find that red=leaved lettuces withstand cold better than green - there's a good variety here called Rouge de Montpellier which we pick all through winter. Enjoy your happy garden!

I knew you'd understand about the aphids, Maggie!I couldn't be bothered explaining it to the rest of the world. :)

Great photos Kate!
The glass house must be a great addition to your garden!
I hope your new gardening group is going well, we have been a little less motivated due to the cold weather here in S.A.
Keep warm,
