Today was the last day for the flower festival at the Catholic church in Belper. The flowers were very pretty as was the church.
My favourite one was the one with the shepherd made from jute bag hessian.
Here are some photos I took in the garden in Cilento. The weather is very hot indeed. You’ll see I managed to find a feijoas tree at the local plant centre and have added it to the vege patch.
This feijoa tree is just a baby so will no doubt take a few years before it produces any fruit. We are seeing how well it does and if it is successful we will buy more plants to create a hedge of feijoas.
With this heat you will not be surprised to see that catcus grow very well here! There is aloe Vera too which can be useful, and the basil in the pots on the balcony go beautifully with the home grown tomatoes!
My naughty hasband has stolen my camera, and he disappeared into the garden.
Questa mattina, il cattivone di mio marito ha rubato la mia macchina fotografica ed e’ scomparso nel giardino.
Half an hour later, he returned, and showed me the photos he took.
Dopo una mezz’ora e’ tornato mostrandomi qualche sua foto.
He told me that now he had proof that it was those naughty pigeons that were eating his plums.
Lui mi ha detto che adesso aveva le prove che quei cattivi piccioni mangiono le sue prugne.
Although I could have sworn that they were not plums, but were bird cherries instead, not for human consumption. But he disagrees, he says they are both plums and cherries, and that the cherries can be eaten. Who knew?

For the very first time in Derby, I came across the most gorgeous sunset, and how opportune for me that I was able to frame the sun with the tree leaves that had formed a circular or heart shape. As I wandered down to Markeaton Park I also discovered some pretty flowers too. I was hoping to get some good shots at the Park as well, but unfortunately most of the flowers there had faded away.
I spent most of my time here getting rid of weeds and other garden waste. In the process I spotted a couple of flowers that had blossomed that was a delightful surprise.
