HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 06:50

Good morning all - we had a slight sprinkling of rain at bedtime but it's been dry ever since and now it's sunny and bright and warming up nicely.  It's had a good start - the temperature only fell to 14.9C last night - that's the warmest night of the year so far. No wonder my tomatoes look happy in their new pots out on the terrace

The photos enlarged for me - the leaves aren't hawthorn-ish - they look more pyracantha-ish to me - but if there are no spines

Sorry, umbellifers are plant with flat heads of flowers like fennel, cow parsley, ammi majus, angelica etc 

Hoverflies love them.
