And the violets are flowering their socks off again in the "Woodland Edge"garden at the Botanic Garden, competing for compliments with the lovely pink and white Cyclamen hederifolium who usually have it all to themselves in the autumn.
Pippa, you would be envious of the wonderful harvest in the Mediterranean Vegetable garden. Even the sweet and hot peppers have performed this year and squashes of every shape and colour, ridge cucumbers, and beans galore in many varities. Sweet corn ripening nicely and a good crop. But the thing that had me drooling today was picking the black pears. I remember their white, fine textured flesh from last Xmas and this year the tree was laden and they are twice as big!
