Each week, Lysha puts up a photographic challenge with prompts for us to look out for, then we share on Lysha's Saturday (my Sunday). Get inspired!   

This week's prompts are:  Feature, On your plate, Forecast, Future, Choose anything monthly.

Feature:  we had this little spot at our new house that just needed a water feature.  I had been looking for a while waiting for the right one, and I happened to visit a garden centre on the other side of town and found just what we wanted.   And guess what?  they had everything marked down 40% that day!  I like that we see it from inside the house too.  So the garden is all planted and ready to grow.  In a years time it will look fantastic.

On your plate:  Strictly not on your plate but in a box - a bento box - YUM.

Forecast:  one day this week we had this lovely dawn, and a few lovely sunny days to enjoy.

Future:   a future vegetable garden in the process of being made.   A little garden compared to the large one we had at the other house.  We are trying the no-dig system which has specified layers. A newspaper layer,  scraps and garden waste, manure straw, newspaper, compost straw/leaves, garden mix - then when we are ready to plant in spring we will put on the straw with pockets of compost/garden mix for the plants.  You won't recognise it in six months time!

The plant in the tub is a thornless blackberry.

Choose anything monthly: our street
