More and more green life by the second!
Japonica flowers are still blooming vibrantly and tastily.
And also lovely patches of Purple deadnettle (Lamium purpurum) in flower.
They make a nice addition to general cooking and have many medicinal virtues.
And probably my favourite street herb Hollyhock (Alcea rosea) is really starting to leaf up now.
I met a woman at the local playground yesterday who mentioned using Hollyhocks as growing support stakes, amongst tomato plants. A lovely idea.
