Karen bought some pumpkin plants the other week and I thought to myself "that's a bit adventurous, even for Karen" .
But this morning while I was going around the garden looking at what we have thriving
(and not thriving) I saw this beautiful yellow flower.
I looked to see what it was and low and behold it was Karen's pumpkin plant.
It's beautiful - so yellowy and summery looking.
The petals look like fine pieces of paper - almost like crepe paper.
I'm hoping this means we are going to get a pumpkin!!!
My apple tree is still doing well but a lot of the wee tiny apples have fallen off - oh no!!! They are not allowed to do that - I can see my apple stash dwindling before my very eyes.
My blueberry plant is not doing so great either - there are a few blueberries growing but nowhere near as many as last year.
And my tomato plants - remember I bought them a few weeks back. Well I managed to totally kill one of them, a couple of them are looking so-so. But I have two healthy looking plants. So here's hoping I get as least some lovely tomatoes.
I think I may have over watered them. According to Karen that is what she thinks I have done, I can only bow to her superior knowledge as she far more of an expert in the garden than me.
Anyway that's what is happening in our garden at the moment.
On another note - I've been reading a fellow blogger's tale of escaping from a forest fire and let me tell you it made for frightening reading.
I hope that these fires dampen down soon and you get some well deserved and needed rain.
My heart goes out to everybody who is involved in this tragedy.
