Height of the summer… July… year 3

Weeds are blooming and growing wild…. that is the down drill of gardening… whatever tools to use to get rid of them, you still have to kowtow hand pick them out or they’ll come back in double and treble….. But at the same time the good bits are the plants purposely planted in are doing the growing beautifully well too……
