Warm September afternoon. Shorts. T.shirts.
Bees. Butterflies. Buzzards overhead.
New campers arriving.
A pleasant visit to the garden. It looks lovely, with Michaelmus daisies coming into full flower, rudbeckia giving strong contrast..... and sunflowers reaching up to blue skies.
I did do a bit of strimming which left the smell of newly cut grass. I picked straw flowers, statice and sunflowers.
Steve picked tomatoes, peppers, carrots and beans.
I wandered around deadheading here, collecting seeds there and absorbing every minute so that I can remember during the winter months.
The butterflies were flitting everywhere and loving verbena boniarensis..I have a new name for the barn path. It is now called "Foxglove Alley." I am so tempted to leave all the foxglove seedlings just to see what happens. What a sight it will be.
It should be an access path ha ha. The ferns I planted here are flourishing as well, under the barn eaves. I will try to keep nettles out.
After the recent rain I did get one path clear leading to the compost heaps. I got stung to pieces by nettles.
When it is cooler we will begin to dig out those heaps with easier access.
