Hathaway Cottage II
Vegetable garden outside the back of the house. Not as extensive as it once probably was. Not as large as the flower portion and assuredly that would no have been the case in the late 1500s. Recognized lettuce, swiss chard, arugula? Some cukes not in this picture. If anyone can identify plants, feel free to weigh in :) Florida can be lush and green--but it always bears witness to the fact that some of the year it's a desert. England has it's own enchantingly lush greeness.
Borage, which I have grown. Beautiful blue flowers. Bees love them. Among other things growing them with your tomatoes are supposed to improve the flavor. You can read more about it here.
Love the huge, blue flowers. The size of humans. Delphiniums, delphiniums, delphiniums. Scattered with some poppies and other things I couldn't identify.
