September Rain


You'd think it couldn't rain anymore, but it just goes on and on.  Today we had more monsoon weather, yesterday we even had hail!  Still haven't done the summer pruning of the fruit trees, now over a month late.

So no gardening done since the weekend, everytime I plan to get out there the weather turns nasty.  Instead here is a photo of my favourite nasturtium - Tom Thumb.  It's a dwarf type, which is great for pots and small gardens.  I plant it under the rambling rose (New Dawn, see previous post) outside my front door as it flowers after the rose has finished, and also scrambles up the rose.  Very pretty.
