I’ll be combining the End of Month View
and using it as a good old catch up…
I’d planned to get some gardening done today but the weather is not being kind… Wish I’d done it yesterday when it was sunny and warm (the sun was rather hot when stood still!) I really need to get my bulbs planted, they’re probably beginning to sprout in their box…
Hoverflies were loving the Asters, these were kindly given to me by a neighbour…
She had two Commas on hers… Not at all jealous…
Peeping over the hedge to catch one of her Commas
Feverfew??? Or something else which has self seeded?
This Aster is far too bushy, I will have to move it next year.
Jacob’s Ladder has self seeded and finally come into flower months after my other.
Russian Dwarf Almond’s leaves are turning a curious deep purple
And Clematis Marjorie is too.
Ladybirds are still in abundance around the garden, they’ve had an excellent year
Notice the second in the background to the left??
I will have plenty more Gaura next year now I’ve discovered how easily they root from cuttings in water.
Creepy Garden spider only gets larger…
Black Elder, I really hope it does something next year, for the past two it has been less than impressive.
Red field poppies ensure I have plenty more next year
Caterpillar of which Moth/Butterfly?? It was a big beastie
It wasn’t until I’d uploaded this image onto the computer that I realised there was a Ladybird hiding.
Fleabane is flowering again
Bergamot is almost finished
Little Alpine Strawberry may not quite have finished
The Hellebores are getting ready for their show
Star Magnolia leaves either suffered in the drought early in the summer or are feeling the effects of Autumn.
Hebes have not yet done anything, they are still small.
Notice the little spider?
