Wait! Cucumbers Have Flowers?

Not that I’ve ever given the matter much thought, but I was genuinely surprised to see that the cucumber plants in our serre were flowering.

Although since they’re planted next to the courgettes, which even I know have flowers, I really ought to have realised.

To be honest, I was just attracted by the water drops.

The White Rose

This rose climbs on a trellis in our garden. The petals are pure white, but the ‘working parts’, as it were, are vibrant yellow and orange.

The Poppies Are Back

A couple of years ago, we (which is to say Madame) sowed a pack of wild flower seeds at the back of the house. Included in the mix were some orange poppies and they just won’t quit.

Renewal

The good news is that the daffodils are back.

The bad news is that so are the weeds.

Pink Enough?

Cee’s theme for her CMMC challenge this week is ‘pink’. Will this do?

Wild Purple

These unusual purple flowers were in a seed mix we sowed in a raised bed a couple of years ago.

White Orchids

There is something serene about these white orchids, especially when set against a black background.
