Summer in the garden

Dear me, it’s been a long old time since I last posted. I’ve not been idle though, just channelling my creativity in other directions, mostly the garden. It’s a mature garden that quietly gets on with it by itself but it does need some encouragement to keep itself tidy and I’m afraid it’s rather been left to its own devices the last couple of years with minimal input from me. Many hours were needed this year to get the weeds under control, which like everything else in the garden, had exploded due to all the rain and mild temperatures we’ve had this year. I don’t actually mind weeding… I find it quite relaxing. Needless to say, it’s all done by hand; no chemicals in my garden thanks.

So, borders weeded and tidied, plants moved, new plants planted, some fruit and veg put in and our old garden seat sanded down and repainted. And I’m already planning for spring; 195 bulbs planted this week. I do love to watch things grow!
