Whilst I am not being very creative - summer turns my brain to mush it would appear - let's see what is growing in the garden. The exotic plants are doing pretty well this year.
Just don't ask me the names of some of the plants - I know this as the pineapple flower.
My prized echium, pinched from a driveway in Alderney and brought home squished in an ice cream carton, seems to be doing fine.
The cucamelon plant has lots of fruit slowly growing - can't wait to eat these as the last time I grew them we had to share the only two fruit between us!
First time I have attempted to grow physalis - frustrating not to be able to see the fruit inside it's little lantern and I have to refrain from squeezing it to feel how big it's grown in there!
At the same time inside the house, I have a feeling the bird of paradise plant may be putting out a flower - not getting excited just yet, but it's looking hopeful.
