Always a pleasure to read Happy Marions contributions! Yes the apples on one of my ancient trees are ready for picking - I only wish |I knew what variety they are - but they keep indefinitely. I will start filling my boot with bags of apples to give away - these old trees produce sufficient for the whole village.
My greenhouse is full of grapes too - will have to do a bit of winemaking, methinks.
I also have a vibrant pot of three bright orange and red begonias - bought cheap, planted late, and flowering their socks off - completely outshine the geraniums which are also abundant this year (and that's after flowering all winter in my unheated lobby.)
