Five Fabulous Things In My Garden

This time of year my garden is not at its best. Searing summer heat and gales followed by high humidity and rain make everything look tatty.

But there's still fabulousness.  Its a garden, so there's always fabulousness...

1. Purple something plants (can't remember the name right now) and my ever faithful helper, the dog.

2. Hairy old carrots

3. Green chillies

4. Crab-apples, ready to be made into crab-apple jelly (they're called Crab-apples because they're so astringent that you make a face like a crab when you eat one. I tried it on the kids. Its true).

5. Granny Smiths.  Our Granny Smith tree is groaning with fruit this year.  Nothing beats sending the kids out to pick their own snack!
