Many of the garden plants are doing well after the recent sunshine. This year we have some potatoes in bags on the paving -
and some runner beans that have not been wiped out by slugs and/or snails! This time the beans were planted in pots in the conservatory, and were only put out in the garden when they had 2 pairs of leaves.
The spring flowers have gone over, and the summer ones are showing up, like these dianthus -
and the Buff Beauty rose -
Not all in the garden is lovely though - those roses give me a rash; and the little oak tree has a problem too. In one area some of the leaves have these galls (?). This is the top of one leaf -
and this is the under-side -
Other examples are paler or darker. What, if anything, will emerge from these growths?
