My Garden in August

It’s about time I share what’s happening out in my garden this month.

With the weather turning cooler, we haven’t been out there as much, and I am missing it. I’m not as on top of it as I was, so I’ve also quite a lot more weeding to do, a daunting task! Flowers are continuing to bloom, and there’s still plenty of colour out there, mainly pinks and purples…

I also see signs of the season ending, with leaves turning orange and brown, and my flower patch all going over, too..

As well as documenting what’s been happening out in the garden each month here, I’m also keeping my gardening journal. It’s allowing me to chart the changes and make plans for this autumn. I’ve lots of replanting to do, as well as sowing seeds, finding homes for new plants that’ll be arriving soon, along with that mountain of weeding! The problem, I’m finding, is that I like going out there and tending to it when it’s sunny and warm, so these next couple of months I’ll have to adjust to gardening in the cooler, wetter weather, so I will be testing out my gardening mettle!

How’s your garden growing?
