OK, so the the failed garden isn't as complete a failure as I'd thought. Imagine my surprise to see these on the admittedly spindly vines! I was going to photograph the difference between the ones from the greenwood garden [no sun] and the ones from my dad's garden [sun] - but I couldn't tell the difference. If anything, the ones from the greenwood garden are maybe a bit more tender. . . . believe it or not!
Also in the 'failed garden', this beautiful climbing rose. It's so perfect, it almost looks fake.
Amazing, isn't it? I went out to look one last time and found all these peas, the roses, and an actual tomato - still green - growing out there, in the shade. Maybe not such a failure, after all.
Guess that means I'd better weed it. Who knows what else I'll find?!
