And the courgettes of course just won’t stop, LOL.

The gladioli are also doing well.

However, the sweet peas are really on their way out now, and I nipped off quite a lot of peas this week just to encourage them to flower a little bit longer.

The sunflowers are growing and one of them even has a flower head, hurrah.

And here are the flowers at home.

Have a great Sunday, everyone.
