Flowers and vegetables

I go out daily to make sure that everything is surviving in the garden, and when you look closely there are a lot of interesting flowers and plants....  the bay leaf tree is beginning to flower....
 ... and the echinacea is not only flowering, but producing lots of new growth at ground level....
 ... the coriander is flowering now.  That means that there's not much more leafy "cilantro" this year.  Now, I'll wait for the seeds for curries and for planting after the weather cools down in the autumn.
 The broccoli is beginning to produce plenty....
 .... and the baby broad beans are looking more "bean-like" by the day....
I'll check the artichokes again this week (broad beans and artichokes seem to produce at the same time.)
