Garden

Hello


Thanks for popping in.

The weather has been fairly mild for the last couple of weeks and despite having to sweep up a compost bag full of leaves each day for a week, the leaves on the trees are hanging on here now, eeking out the rest of the Autumn days before the cold sets in.  We have been bombarded by acorns and chestnuts though as they thud onto the roof or the car and I've collected two of those squashy plastic garden carriers (purple) full of those.

Flowers are going strong here and there.



The eucomis seeds are ready and are surprisingly easy to grow.



The end of the garden has had a good tidy up, holly and rhododendrons have been pruned, sticks chopped up ready to light the stove.





Mr CK is planning to paint the fence with a coloured wood stain soon. Exciting.

Have a good weekend.

Cheerio

  1. Lovely autumnal colours in your garden. I wonder what colour you will choose to paint your fence? One of our neighbours has painted his a dark grey:)

  2. You have a woodland area in your garden? That's great! The colourful mosaic is full of examples of autumn loveliness and the photo of the ferns is beautiful. Have a good weekend!

    1. Thank you, you too. Once the wooded bit is tidied up, it looks after itself.

  4. You've still got so much colour in your garden. The trees seem to be losing their leaves pretty quickly here at the moment, a sure sign that winter's on the way.

    1. Each day the trees look a bit different now. We could just do with some late Autumn sunshine.
