Flighty's Plot sent me. He's dubbed them Flighty's Favourites and I can see why. He has such a lovely mix of colours around his plot, and this year he's recording as many of them on his blog as he can. Some of mine are now blooming so I thought I would show you the colours I've got so far. Each of these plants are so different from the other, though I can't choose a favourite between them. I wonder what other colours and variations I'll get.
Last year, I bought a tayberry plant. I've got every intention to plant it at the allotment and have even bought an arch for it to grow up, but it's still in it's pot at the moment. It hasn't prevented it from fruiting though, we've already had half a dozen jewel like berries from it with the promise of more to come. My daughter really likes them, as she does with most things, and Hubby does too. I have to say that I'm not a huge fan, though I'm not overkeen on raspberries either so it's no surprise. I'll stick to my favourite strawberries.
I'm hoping that the gorgeous weather we're having is going to continue for a while longer as we go on holiday for a fortnight tomorrow. We're going to one of our favourite places, Cornwall. We're staying at the same place as we did last year, a small site near Bude which houses eight lodges and two cottages, has four fishing lakes, an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, games room and gym, amongst other things, and we really love it there. I've roped in family members to take care of the watering whilst we're away, so I'm hoping that everything survives. I've got some green tomatoes on my plants, though some fruit is still setting, but it would be lovely to come home and see some of the fruit starting to ripen. Something to look forward to.
Sock Knitting Tips - I often get comments on my sock posts from people who would love to knit socks themselves but haven't yet given it a go, or from people who are too nervous...
