In the early toddler days of summer I took you on a photographic tour of my garden after a couple of days of heavy and relentless rain. Despite, or perhaps because of the downpour there was unexpected beauty to be found everywhere.
I love this leaf. Has it arrived, or is it about to embark?
The toddler is now grown and the musty, earthy smell of the early morning indicates the arrival of autumn. So before the season fully turns please join me on a wander around the late summer garden.
Fuchsia, or as I called them when I was a child – Dancing Ladies.
The last of the summer lettuce.
Hide and seek playing sweet pea.
Waiting for the grapes to ripen.
Green, grassy-smelling hops.
The sunflower hedge, heads up and soaking up the rays.
Peppermint in flower.
Not long now.
Hawthorn berries bring colour to the hedges.
Wild Carrot, open and closed.
Agapanthus dancing in the breeze.
The beginning and the end of the roses.
Francine and Mylie waiting for me to move out of their way.
Enjoy the dog days of summer. Maybe even with a dog …
