Late June seems to be the time when plants grow fastest, and our garden is beginning to look like a jungle. At this point it's the greenery that's growing, but at least for the veggies we're hoping that will turn into a crop by the end of the summer. We're already enjoying some peas and tiny carrots.

It started on Friday afternoon. Mrs. F.G. headed for Thornbury to pick up the flat of strawberries we had ordered from our favourite local farm market, Goldsmiths. She gathered together all the things needed for making jam, so we'd be ready to start Saturday morning.

While Mrs. F.G. wandered the nursery, I chugged down the path that I could access and got a few more photos. While I was doing this the guy that was working there came up and said you're the Furry Gnome aren't you (he knew my actual name). It turned out we had met on a field trip and his partner recognized me too. They soon introduced me to her mother, who moved here 50 years ago and runs the nursery (with a lot of help from them). So it turned into quite a social visit for me!

Yesterday we headed out for a drive to a favourite local nursery, known as Grange Hollow. I must ask them next time how they got that name! Anyway, it was a nice drive and I had a pleasant visit looking around, while Mrs. F.G. was looking for yet more plants.

I've got just a few more photos to share from various spots around town. It's a motley collection of things that interested me as I passed by, so here goes.

The earliest group of photos I haven't shared were taken on two or three different rides down to the harbour. I always enjoy getting down by the water, though unless there's a good offshore breeze, and it's very warm I do find it chilly yet. These won't be new to you if you've been following in previous years, but here they are.
