Poppies and clouds

8th July 2012

I have managed to keep up with the weeding of the vegetable plot this year.  My cunning strategy has been to leave selected 'weeds' that either look pretty, or grow really fast, in order to help crowd-out the other less desirable weed types.   I have let the poppies and nasturtiums grow to give ground cover while the wanted veg struggles along at its own pace.

The first of the poppies was in bloom today; luckily we have not had any rain for 24hours to rip off the petals.

The sky also had an unusual colour to it today; blue.   There were many shapely clouds around too, even one or two rays of sunshine.
