What a lovely start to September, Season of mellow mists and fruitfulness, Although a bit chillier in the mornings the days have progressed into warm, sunny delights, and when walking the dogs though starting out with coat buttoned up, it soon comes off and carried. When it is like this September to me is probably the most beautiful month, I love the sun and warmth, but sometimes in July or August it can be too hot to do anything in the least energetic. This gives one a chance to get the garden into shape ready for winter shutdown, chopping off heads and pulling up roots, and preparing space for the spring bulbs. The birds are moulting and getting their winter duvet plumage on, the trials of parenthood are over and they can enjoy a brief spell of ”me time” before having to think of fattening up for the cold weather.
The lawn is fast getting covered on leaves from the Lime tree The large fennel has sprouted it;s seeds and attracted dozens of hover flies. Roses are disappearing but the Japanese Anemones are in full glory.
Oh well I think I’ve chatted long enough, so must go out and tend to this garden while the sun is shining. Thanks for dropping by.
