The zucchini has gone back to producing only female flowers, which means more baby zukes for my dinner but not any long ones for a proper meal.

Garden Bloggers Blooms Day
It is that time of the month again. Due to the early Spring hot spell most of the flowers in the garden are a bit scorched. The snapdragons are on their last lease of life and the blue cornflowers are just hanging in there.
The sunflower is stunning at the moment - he doesn't mind the heat.
And the geraniums are happier than ever!
I am planting some new flower seeds this week, portulaca, which like the heat and flower quickly and readily; lets see how they hold up with the summer heat. So the early and unseasonal hot weather has had an impact in the flower world ... stay tuned to see what it has done to the vegetables (I have the first of something just about ripe!!!)
