Apparently it was World Kindness Day a few days ago. Thanks to Sally over at my beautiful things for the inadvertent ‘Heads-Up’.
Being the atheist heathen I am I couldn’t think of anything kindly, other than to say ‘Hi” through gritted teeth to my son’s mate who is a Manchester United fan. And trust me, that was an effort.
But I did spot this while out and about …
Looking up Steyn Street while out with Ella
Orange Fly By – chop chop(er)!
On the subject of ”chop chop”. While not quite oranges, these are from the same family.
Juicing a few more lemons the other day. What a joy only having to walk up the garden path a pick a few from one of the trees!
And talking of up the garden path…
First time I’ve had a go at growing broccoli. Harvested this for Sunday Lunch. Looks pretty good I’d say? There are a few more still growing. Number 7 manages to sneak into the picture.
First of the squash to show….
Most of the petals have fallen off but Mrs. Crab Spider seems content.
Peering up through the Pecan Nut Tree. This hasn’t produced any fruit …. yet. Maybe one day.
Yuccas in the lower garden.
Removing this from the lower garden is proving to be tougher than first anticipated. The surrounding boulders aren’t helping either!
John Z showed a pic of a couple of Avocados he was sprouting in water. Here’s one that I planted directly into soil. I don’t know the variety but the fruit is not that big when ripe. The wife prefers this variety. You can just see the planting date on the marker – 7th July’21.
It’s about ready for planting out, but as these trees can grow rather large due consideration must be given as to where it’ll go. I suggested smack in the middle of the lawn. My wife was not impressed.
And spotted this yesterday …
Caterpillar of the Citrus Swallowtail enjoying a snack on one of the lemon trees.
Small Blue … I think. (Brian, what say you?)
Meringue-topped vanilla chiffon. Went out Monday.
That’ll do for now …
And remember … try to be kind, if only to yourself . Or, if you are feeling magnanimous, a Man United fan!
