Around The Garden

On monday, our california lilac looked amazing so I thought I’d take photos – tomorrow. It rained overnight and washed a lot of the petals off, I was most annoyed on tuesday morning 😀

The henhouse. And the lilac tree, which migrated from next door. We liked it so we kept it!

Chamomile. Still small, I think we might manage one cup of tea from the flowers this year 😀

Chives and parsley. They protested when I bought them in for couple of days when frost was forecast, they seem to be recovering now

      We’re very lucky, our garden is south-west facing. Not all the plants are that tall, I only included the best ones, lol

    Your purple flowers look like a miniature scabious to me, but don’t quote me on that 🙂

    The purple flowers could be sea pinks ( alpine), love the garden.

      Thanks 🙂

      I googled scabious and sea pinks (there seems to be different varieties of both), took the laptop outside to compare the plant to the photos and it could be either 😀 So I’ll just call it Sea Scabious. lol
