Down at Old Tidemill School Wildlife Garden we have been lucky, lucky, lucky. We spent the two weekends of our exhibition in lovely sunshine, except for just one day. This week's community gardening session was the only sunny day this week, I think. Ella and I have decided to try and identify all the wildflowers in the garden. All well and good, but I am not a botanist and Yellow-flowered daisies have us confused. There are about 20,000 of them. Ok, I exaggerate, but you would see my point if you were to come down on Tuesdays when the garden is open. Hairy ox-tongues - actually I think I might have just made that up... but some were hairy. I think Hawkweed is the proper name.
The sunflower has now bent down in that Autumn way that sunflowers do. The wild flower bed is still looking lovely, with flowers still blooming on the scabious, clover and purple vetch.
Here's to a lovely autumn and some lovely gardening and cooking sessions at Tidemill. Last weeks lunch was LOVELY btw. Louise rustled up a goulash with dumplings.
Does food taste better when it is cooked and eaten outside? Discuss.
