As for what else has happened in the Rollercoaster household - well there was Father's Day last Sunday of course but it wasn't eventful, Little Miss Star has had a slight ear infection (probably due to spending most of her holiday underwater) and there was yet another school disco. The most exciting news is that we finally seem to be getting somewhere with our campaign for allotments in the village and we are actually going to be doing some fundraising for them soon but more of that in a couple of weeks.
As I said there is a lot of greenery going on and much of this is fruit that has yet to ripen - future fruit with any luck - here we have apples, raspberries, strawberries, currants, blueberries and gooseberries.
These little yellow flowers on a small tree are also loved by the bees. I have no idea what the tree is - it has silvery grey leaves and these gorgeous smelling flowers which may not look much but smell divine.
My new flower bed has not as yet produced flowers but there are buds and as the plants are perennials I think it is next year when it will really flourish. The new herb bed however is doing well and for those that saw my post on herbs a few weeks ago here is what it looks like now:
Linking up with the Boy and Me for the Year in Pictures and with Mammasurus for How Does Your Garden Grow? and belatedly with The Gallery over at Sticky Fingers as I thought the 'green' theme went well with my pictures - especially the future fruit!
