It's autumn. It's raining. The wind is blowing, or rather: it's storming. Everything looks grey. Sue asked us again to send in our colours of the month, but the past few days didn't exactly invite us to walk arond the garden. Therefore a few pictures of earlier this month, when the sun appeared now and then.
When summerholidays began Jasper came to us with a very small plant. His teacher had given it to him, to look after durin g the holidays. What it was? Jasper had no idea. We had. He asked, if his plant could grow in our garden. It could. Together with him the plant was put into the ground. Jasper went to Spain, for a holiday with his parents and sisters. When he came back, he saw this.
Zo ziet het kleine plantje er nu uit. In de hoek rechts beneden is nog een puntje te zien van onze courgetteplant. Die ziet er ongeveer net zo uit als Jasper's pompoen. Leigh vroeg zich af, wat iedereen toch met courgette's doet. Ik zal proberen binnenkort wat recepten te geven hier. Maar één plant produceert al meer dan we kunnen opeten
This is what the little plant looks like now. In the bottom right corner the leaves are visible of our 'courgette' plant - I think it's zucchini or squash in English speaking countries. Leigh wondered, what people do with these. I'll try to write some of my recipes here soon. But one plant produces more than the two of us can eat.
The roses are getting fruit as well.
But still: the roses are getting to their end...
Wildlife in our garden
with his friend. Isn't the frog's colour beautifully the same colour as the leaf on which it is sittting?
