Upcycled Watering Can

In the garden, things continue to spring to life. Last year, Mr O took a cutting of this flower which we planted in an old watering can (making holes for drainage first).  I have to be honest, I didn’t expect much, but this week what had previously appeared to be two dead twigs has bloomed beautifully and is now in pride of place in the garden.

Also growing well are the Cape Gooseberries (Physalis), which after a slow start are now in flower. Fingers crossed that they continue to flourish and provide us with some lantern wrapped berries in the autumn.

Finally, a mention for this tiny Birdsfoot Trefoil, which bloomed this week. We planted this last year, but much to my dismay it didn’t flower. We bought it as I remembered it from my childhood, and I am so glad it has finally flowered. Another example of something so tiny and unassuming, and yet so beautiful.
