Turquoise Top

I have said several times in previous posts that turquoise is one of my favourite colours, so my eyes lit up when I spotted this top in my size in a 50 pence bargain basket in a charity shop. It was in excellent condition so it was a win win situation for me!
It is still humid and dry here in the UK so I have had to spend a lot of time each evening watering my plants. The vegetables really do need some rain and my runner beans in particular are suffering in the dry spell. The potatoes however have done well and I have been harvesting them for several weeks. We also have a good crop of tomatoes and cucumbers.
I have been particularly pleased at my floral tubs this year. This one has african marigolds, petunias, snapdragons and begonias. They should remain in bloom until late September and brighten up my patio.


  1. What a great top! I agree, it's a pretty color.
    Your flowers look beautiful! Hopefully you can get some rain soon. :)

    1. Thank you Paige - we have now had a little rain.

  2. Your jewel tone top is beautiful and I love the picture of your flowers.
