We've also remarked on the increase in bees in our garden this year, lots of bumbles and solitary bees of all different sorts.

Panda - don't worry about it, we'll share Clari's cider later.  

Well, gardening stopped almost as soon as it started as I had to dash to get the washing in while the Gods were moving the furniture around upstairs!!!!!!!!  

I've decided that it's definitely a Watching Wimbledon afternoon (which probably means that the rain's going to stop any minute).  I've made supper - all I have to do is turn the oven on and pop it in later.  

Just going to put the kettle on and put my feet up in front of Centre Court

Fingers crossed James   Don't overwater it - after all, in the wild it copes with pretty dry conditions.

I've never grown eucalyptus but I wouldn't think that tomato feed is suitable as it is formulated to encourage flowering and fruiting.  

How long is it since you've had it?

 This is my newly planted Bonica when it was just coming into bloom a couple of weeks ago - now it has clusters of several blooms.
