Sum peepol hav bin arskin bowt the sunflowers I plarntid. Oh deer. Erm, well. Sorry, but they all committid sueyside. Ha! Oh well. I thort I wud tayke a few pikchers for yu ov wat IS growin owt bak.
I won't carp on abowt the flowers. That's Dilly's department reelly. Sheez forever stikkin roses an stuff on her blog. No. I'm mor intrestid in things like herbs. They're intrestin. Sum ov them tayste nice, wile uthers provide a soft an nicely sentid wipe for wen I've had to nip behind the tree.
So heer we go-
The bak garden is a skware shaype.
Theez pots ar stuff that Mummy hassent fownd playsis to plarnt.Clokwise from me, sittin in sum Orange Thyme; then Ginger Mint, a small willow tree at the bak, Chamomile (wich Mummy luvs but Daddy thinks smells like cats), a small tree peony, "Buckler's Leaf" type sorrel, a pasque flower at the frunt, an in the middol pot thare is pineapple-sage an marjoram.
This spikey lookin herb is calld Toadflax. In the middol is Motherwort an at the bak is Southernwood, wich is nice an lemonny.
The bees like this next herb, too. It's calld Valerian. Lots ov it gro all over arownd heer. This bit waz growin owtta the conkreet in the drive, an Daddy weedid it. Mummy sor him carryin it an sed, "Giv that heer, I'll hav that!" an plarntid it in the bak. It waz smaller than me in thoze days.
This next herb is calld Rue. I like it cos it's a blooey-green culler an it smells intrestin. Sort ov medisinny. Or like likkorish.
This wun's calld Sweet Cicely. Oops! Lost me boot!
This next wun is Fennel, an it's kwite fluffy an tikkly an smells ov annaseed.
Theez ar calld PennyRoyal an ar minty. I'm hoppin on wun fut coz I've lost me boot agen!
This is Pot Marrygold. The wite bits ar berd poo. HAHAHAHA!
Thoze larst few wuns ar in the Dark Corner. At the bak ov this corner, we stakt sum old wood an sum big cuttings from the tree....
Arfter a week, sum frogs had moovd in wun end, an sum bumblebees had moovd in at the uther! A woodmouse livs in this bit, too, an the hedgehog parsses this way at nite. I like this corner!
This is my berd-warterer. The dome part haz a hole at the bottom. Yu fill the dome wiv warter, put the sorcer on top, then flip it up-side-down reelly farst. Wunce it's this way up, the warter comes owt for abowt an inch. The berds can sip this an they get fresh warter for days, so it's handy for wen we go to Granny's.
Neerly finishd! This is Foxglove. I like it cos bees go rite up inside the flowers an all yu can see is their bottoms, wigglin!
.............an .......... this is my Oak tree, wich I'm growin from a haycorn!!!!!
Well I hope yu enjoyd my tour ov wat's growin owt bak!!!
