Pumpkins Flowering Among the Nasturtiums

Pumpkin Flower

A friend gave me a pumpkin last year,  I saved the seeds and grew this plant.  It’s growing among the Nasturtium ‘Salmon Baby’, Calendula and Phacelia.  I love these big, no nonsense flowers.

The Old Pear Tree

This poor old pear tree is so neglected and in desperate need of renovation but I need to find a ladder tall enough first!  It’s fruiting on current season’s wood so the pears are right at the top, no doubt the birds will love them.  This type of renovation pruning needs to be carried out in the winter so plenty of time to find a ladder.
