A brighter day!

Hi there! It finally feels like we are turning a corner. Being stuck at home, and not having our business running at full speed hasn’t been great. However, people are starting to get back to work and school now, so hopefully things will start to improve.

We added a small vegetable patch to our garden a couple of months ago, and we are already starting to get some fresh veg from it!

It’s only small, but we a growing carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, mini tomatoes, sweet potatoes, green peppers, and asparagus.
Not long until we can eat some mini tomatoes!
We had a cucumber salad with lunch today. Great with oil and vinegar!
As you can see, it’s not very big. We just moved some of the gravel out of the way, and used some old signs from our English school for the border.
Everything else in the garden is growing up nicely too. I found that old iron wheel. I think it will look nice when the roses bloom.
I was given an old cable reel from the phone company. Painted it green and put a few plants on it.
Not sure what this is called, but every year it looks great when it comes into flower.
The one with the blue flowers on is my favorite. It flowers from May until November, and is really hardy.
The flowers along the fence at our English school look great at the moment too.
Lots of different colors.
The Hydrangea has more flowers than leaves!
The Conker tree from England is still alive!
The Oak tree from England looks more like a bush now. I try and keep it short so people can see our school from the road.

Anyway, hope you are all well and that we can all get back to normal very soon!

All the best,

Eddie

One thought on “A brighter day!”

  1. It all looks amazing! The shrub with orange berries and yellow flowers is called hypericum. We have some here but not in flower yet. Everything looks so lush..it is a credit to you!
