Allotments and AK47s?!

How can it be raining when there are no clouds? In fact we have finally got a hose-pipe to water the plants with, much to M's delight.
DH is scared to purchase any lettuces from the supermarket now lest I am offended!

and the unidentified plants have now flowered, leaving me no clearer as to what they are. S thinks they should be taken down with the secateurs, but they are not unpleasant-looking, so I've let thenm be. Anyone know what they are??

Lettuce and more mint (tried to pick it before it flowered)
and now drying the mint out, and as it seems to be a constant 26C plus in the kitchen, this seems as good a place as any.

S's using youtube instructions to make a paper AK47 gun. Not exactly politically correct crafting, but a creative and non-computer games passing of time. Much patience was needed, as dozens of pieces of sticky tape were required.

and then some painting..
'No I don't need any help,
no not even in destroying it,'

That plant looks as if it could be some kind of herb as so many of them have flowers that colour. Does it smell 'herby' at all?

JudyAdamsonArtandDesign - no it doesn't smell herby, the flowers have a fairly faint pleasant smell. The plants started off like in this blog post back in the Spring

I don't recognise the plants,but I like them and would leave them there.
MaashAllah, well done for growing those lettuces.

ummrashid - wa aleykum asalam, jazakiAllahkhair. Inoticed today the flowers were actually very pale pink, the plot thickens!
