Thanks for hosting Heidi and a wonderful banner photo from Belita
I had to delve in my archives here as I no longer get out very much and this year is not such a garden year being surrounded by scaffolding and builders. However, I did have a little success last year and grew gourd seeds, although I only had one success and here it is hanging and waiting for harvest. However, it was not an eatable gourd, but a so-called decorative gourd.
These are known as Cornelian Cherries and we have two trees growing in the meadow opposite our garden. They are apparently edible, although I have never tried one and according to Wikipedia are quite tart in taste. They are a member of the dogwood family.
And what the Belgian Painter René Margritte can do with his painting "The Son of Man", I can do with the neighbour's cat and one of my apples. I wanted to post a link to the painting here but Blogger is not so refined in its ways as other web hosters.
And finally seen in Dagenham Heathway on a visit to my dad in 2014.
