Stop and see new life

I’ve got so much to do over the next few days that I don’t have much time, but before rushing to my office this morning I remembered the seeds I had planted.

I had to take a look.

Sure enough, the runner bean and tomato seedlings are sprouting.

What a wonderful feeling.

What makes it even more special for me is that I have family members and friends who are ageing or not in good health at the moment.

It is a sad knowing that there will be farewells soon. Sometimes it can feel that life is grim, but these tiny seedlings put it in perspective.

We are all young once, full of vitality, stretching up in search of light and energy. We live our lives and, hopefully, are able to enjoy our time as much as possible.

The seedlings stopped me and reminded me of this.

I’ll get my work done today, but I won’t feel so frantic.

Long distance tomatoes finally ripening

The fruit has been growing for ages, it seems, but the tomatoes are finally starting to ripen.

Looks like being our first good crop for quite a few years after rain spoilt previous crops.

Who’s getting fruity in the garden?

I just wish I could slow time down at this point of the year. From April to June everything seems to grow so fast. The poppies have come and gone in a blink and our wild rose has almost finished flowering.

Now the flowers on the bushes are developing into flowers. The raspberries look good . . .

. . . and so do the blackcurrants . . .

As you can see, I’m a practical gardener and love plants that provide produce. The runner beans are starting to flower, although still have a way to grow up the wall, and the tomatoes are too.

So while it will be wonderful to eat the beans and tomatoes, and make jams and puddings, I don’t want the summer to pass by too fast.

I do enjoy flowers though and think the colour of these (haven’t a clue what they are ) is stunning . . .
