Penstemons, Marking and Muffins

Out with Bella this morning, I stopped to admire our vines with their flowers set ready to swell into grapes.
Our giant nepeta has started to flower. 
Verbena bonariensis standing tall as well. 

A great stand of flowering nettles.

Pretty geranium in a neighbour's garden.

One garden is covered with campanula, which is much loved by the local bees.

Poppy growing out of a crack in the pavement.

Spent a fair bit of the day marking, some of it in the garden again. Had a break and baked a batch of spinach and feta muffins…

Took Bella out for an early evening stroll, stooping this time to admire one of our newly planted penstemons.

Foxglove in a neighbour's garden.

Figs growing with Little Solsbury under blue skies in the distance.

Umbellifer abundant.

An interesting collection by this post box - won't fit in!

Such an old Neighbourhood Watch sign!
More penstemons in a neighbour's garden. 
This day a year ago, our "not gunnera" was already flowering - which it hasn't even started to yet this year.
