|My new wet weather boots|
It is quite wet out today. The rain held off yesterday which is a good thing because the girls had their athletics carnival.
There really isn't much gardening going on today. It's all just wandering about camera in hand. Seeing what is good to pick, what isn't quite ready and just getting a little bit of outside time in between showers which have just turned into a downpour. Lovely!!
Rain = Bad hair day apparently. And no comment except a stuck out tongue for the paparazzi. I'll show some pictures of garden things instead.
Tatsoi needs to be picked. I'm making spaghetti for dinner (I'm already hearing rumblings of discontent) so a nice salad alongside will welcome the extra greens. Yum!
Eureka lemon on its way to ripe. I wouldn't say the tree is laden but there are a few lemons which will be ready to pick soon. In the meantime I was given some yesterday which should tide me over.
I bought this plant labelled as 'dogbane' but from what I can tell it is Coleus Canina or Scaredy Cat Coleus, Plectranthus caninus . It may well live up to its hype and keep away cats and dogs but I wouldn't know. I do know that it doesn't the deter rabbits which have been very bold of late and have been raiding the herb garden. I must try to stay up a little later and try to get on top of that problem.
As it is truly pouring down now, I'm through with the outdoors today and I'm dreaming of what I might knit first from this book. It's the loveliest knitting book I have seen in a while. Very dreamy and whimsical. This is a library copy but I think I will have to buy it. If you would like to check out some of the designs from the book along with some other designs by Tiny Owl Knits, there is a page on Ravelry.
