It’s amazing just how much a garden can change in the space of two months. Back in June I wrote about summer in our garden – It was full of colour and so incredibly vibrant, it seemed as if everything was in full bloom! Fast forward two months and there are just a few spots of colour here and there, plants which have not yet been ravaged by the butterflies (we have had so many butterflies this year! M thinks the Buddleia is actually called the ‘butterfly tree’), and are clinging on to soak up the last of the summer sun.
There are hints of autumn (my favourite season) coming through in the form of blackberries and elderberries and I am looking forward to the day they are ripe enough for picking (elderberry vodka, anyone?).
Having now enjoyed almost two years in this garden we have now got a pretty good idea of what grows at certain times, and now that our landlord has (slightly) relaxed the rules about what we can and cannot do in the garden we are looking forward to adding our own touch to it.
