I thought it was about time that I brought you an update on the garden…
The season is certainly ringing the changes out there in the garden. The wet weather has also put pay to a fair few gardening plans. Truth be told, it’s all looking a little bedraggled, sodden and sorry for itself, with leaves scattered all over the lawn. I must get back out there, even if just for an hour or two to tidy it up, and then I need another good session to further progress Project Garden. That rockery is emptying now, but there’s still so much more to do (isn’t there always?!).
I’m keen to get creating a little fairy garden with Boo before the weather really takes a turn. I’ll probably just work on the structure of it now, as I’m not certain that anything I plant in there will make it through the winter. It’ll be good to have the home created for them ready to plant up in the spring. I’ve been looking at lots of ideas over on Pinterest, so I think I’ll show them all to Boo and then get her help with the design for ours, and get cracking on it. I’ve a feeling she’ll like that, so I will report back on that soon..
The garden does still have some splashes of colour…
I do love this tree, as it provides some lovely natural shade in the summer, which the dog is very keen on, and I like to see the colour changes through the autumn. However, I’m not keen on collecting all of the leaves..!
I was at a garden centre a few days ago, and I was admiring this autumn display, as it looks so colourful..
It’s helped me figure out what I need to add in ready to give the garden more colour this time next year.
What about you? Do you have much colour left out there?
