The dahlias are in full flower. This lemon yellow with the peach blush is gorgeous. Every time I look at these I think of my mother and remember her Summer garden, dahlias were a favourite, her collection included all different types and colours.
The citrus trees are looking good with plenty of fruit on them.
The plums are nearly ripe, one of the trees is a triple graft, three different types on the one tree and there are three more trees. More fruit for the freezer and jam.
lots of fresh herbs, the mint contained to prevent it taking over.
Four different types of chillies. We will leave some to ripen to a bright red, however, the green chilli jam beckons.
A few of these have flowered this week. Self sown and have obviously found the right conditions. In our garden they mostly flower in November and early December, I can not recall having them flower this late in Summer.
