Here comes summer

Wednesday saw the start of June and the first day of summer meteorologically speaking. It turned out to be a good start with plenty of sunshine, mild but a bit breezy at times.

On the plot our Crimson Flowered broad beans are just starting to flower. The flowers are appearing on rather dwarf plants which I assume is due to lack of rainfall. Perhaps a good watering will help them along.

We also have some interesting flowers (weeds) in our grass paths around our beds down on the plot.

It's flowering along with some buttercups on a very short stem just like the buttercups. It will be interesting to see if can cope with the close cropping it's going to get in the next few days when the path is mowed.
