I'm busy cutting back plants that have flowered, hedges and shrubs that have grown out of shape, and generally having a right good fettle up, as they say up north! I've put the soft growth on the compost heap but there remains a huge pile of debris. Once it has dried out and there is a steady west wind I shall have the pleasure of lighting an enormous bonfire.
The flowers with late summer colours are starting to emerge.
A small clematis is attempting to rise above the fennel. It is actually blue, but the camera occasionally seems to make up it's own colours on a whim!
I've spent today sorting out my garden store. This is my sole domain - Himself has the garage, a painting shed and a carving room, but he sneaked up with the camera to record what I was up to.
The little building is crammed with things that some might think a load of rubbish, such a various bits of string and bent wire. I'm sure they will all come in useful sometime or other!
Okay, so it looks a tad scruffy. But I can assure you that it's a whole lot better than it was before.
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
