Plum conundrum!

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 08:36

I agree - the conditions this year have been just perfect for some plum trees.  My mother in law's plum, which has fruited moderately in previous years, is just covered with wonderful purple plums and we're struggling to keep up with them.  

It's just one of those years

Chillis on Thai basil

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 07:31

Looks like a chilli plant to me too.  My purple chillies had purple flowers. 

Have you tried eating the leaves - do they taste like Thai basil?

If you slice the seedpods open are they like chillies inside  and is the juice 'hot' ?

Don't rub your eyes!!!

Lovely pics 

Can't zoom in enough to see the shape of the petals, but I'm wondering whether that un-named plant might be or a relative?

Forsythia - and wisteria

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 20:07

It's late in what has been quite a warm and dry season (well here it has anyway).  Autumn is here and the leaves are dying - well, that's my diagnosis for the forsythia anyway.  

I'm worried about a wisteria in a pot - how big is the pot?
