I did a bucketful of deadheading in the midday sun today. I thibk I’ve momentarily made the cornflowers look more alive than dead. The everlasting peas are mostly done, but might throw out some more flowers if I’m lucky.

My French marigolds look splendid. I’m so glad I pursued sowing them. The first couple of snapdragons are open now. I’m glad to have added them to what might seed down in the plot, but I think standard snapdragons are prettier.

I cut a big bunch of flowers for photos and picked a big piles of runner beans and a fat handful of French beans.
