My garden is beginning to look a little like it used.. but so slowly! During the four years of being in the hands of tenants the weeds had taken over and it has taken a while to clear the tangle of brambles and celandine. The slowness is due to me, it has been difficult. I have been able to plant up a new bit of garden in front of the small trees. I am pleased I made the effort the other week. It may look bare in places but I am willing the perennials to bush out and I will add to them in the spring.
There are still daffodil bulbs to plant, but when we had that wonderful Indian summer, it was too hot! How could it have been too hot in October? I am not worried about getting the last of the bulbs in, when I worked full time I planted them on Boxing day as it was the only day I had free time!When people were saying it was too hot I kept quiet after last winter’s snow, the longer it is, before winter sets in suits me best.
My little shed has had a new coat of paint and looks as good as new. The nastursiums bordering the flower bed were all planted this summer, just so I could have some colour. We have sat out here each day for morning coffee and afternoon tea and when it gets chilly we will sit in the conservatory and look at it all, just a small piece of heaven..
