Paul's garden is currently largely ornamental. He doesn't usually grow any veg, just a few things like currants, but perhaps one day I will convert him!
This week Paul sent me some photos of some of his plants. The first photo I want to share with you is a stunning display of berries from a type of Iris. He tells me these are very prolific, self-seeding all over his garden. They have fairly pale, blue flowers. I think you will agree that the berries are very impressive to look at. Anyone know the proper name for this variety?
Paul also has a Crab Apple tree in his garden. It's a different variety to the one I have, and he says the apples it produces are very small (about the size of grapes) and he has not been tempted to try eating them. Perhaps he should have a go with Jane's recipe for Crab Apple jelly (see my post of 16 August 2010)! The Autumn foliage on all the the trees in our area has been spectacular this year, and Paul's Crab Apple is no exception.
Paul isn't (yet) into blogging, but I hope from time to time to be able to show you some pictures of his gardening endeavours.
