'July - she will fly'

In the words of the song 'July, she will fly'! Another month gone - garden and lottie both in need of much work. July has been warm and very dry until the last week of the month. Have eaten first courgettes, tomatoes still to ripen and cucumbers sadly seem to be yellowing and withering on the plants.

I have some new plants - went to Morreys and made several purchases including a phlox by the name of 'Omega' which is beautifully scented.

Off now to take a few cuttings of the osteospernum that my colleague S. gave me many moons ago as the original plant is looking somewhat straggly.
