Well it may be that summer is almost here. After a day of grey clouds and threatened rain the sky is now clear and blue in the mid evening and we are promised hot weather for the weekend.
The rain and muggy weather has done things to the veg patch over the last few days and it is almost obscene with growth everything falling over the other as it tries to get bigger. After weeks of looking a failure the courgette plants have taken over and overspilled their narrow stripe of ground. I walked down there this evening and under the leaves I spotted the yellow burst of their first flowers. I could not resist picking one and eating it down.
It was August last year I had my last courgette flower and by way of a small celebration here are some pictures of me eating it.
There will be more of these over the next few weeks!
