Where has summer gone? When I walk round the garden first thing in the morning it's cool and damp, with that slightly melancholic feeling that I associate with autumn.
This week, on a cold, dull day, a balloon came low over the garden. Polar bears - surely not as cold as all that!
Just the thing to post for Skywatch Friday.
I've moved the pots of lilies undercover, the rain was washing the pollen and staining the petals. I've snipped the pollen off before it can do any damage to our clothes!
The 'Meyer' lemon is cropping well and I'm going to make some batches of lemon curd - a nice task for a rainy day like today.
The fruit on my other citrus trees has yet to ripen
but there are figs on the small cutting that I took last year. Hope they don't fall off!
Some of the garden flowers are relishing the wet
or at least putting up with it with a good grace.
I hope that summer is working out well for you.
