It’s the 15th! For some folks, it’s pay-day. For me, it’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, kindly hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens :)
This is the most exciting Bloom Day I’ve ever experienced!
Some things are coming to an end in the raised garden beds — the peas look like they’re about done, and the marigolds are being heavily deadheaded, but other things are still on the up and go. It’s been pretty warm here (for New Zealand, anyway) so trying to keep on top of the watering with the water restrictions we’ve got in Christchurch have been hard on everyone.
The new lemon tree Ben’s parents gave me has so many blooms on it! They smell so good! I’m not sure whether to leave them or to pinch them off though. There are so many, and it already has fruit as well.
My coriander’s going to seed! Will plant some more shortly. It’s so easy to grow, and even easier to eat! :)
I spotted the first flower on my capsicums! Exciting. I wonder what kind it will be — I ordered a ‘rainbow mix’ of tomatoes and capsicums.
I know he’s not a bloom, but I thought he was pretty, so Sir Jumpsalot gets to be in this post. I thought he was going to jump on me several times — he kept following my movements and then turning towards me lol.
Some kind of cute bug in a rose! :) Some weird things have been popping up in Ms. Chameleon’s foliage lately…
And that’s why today has been so exciting! :) Ben finally asked me to marry him. Or in his words, “make it official,” because he’s considered me his wife for quite some time already.
What’s blooming in your garden (or life)?
