A walk around the garden before the cold sets in – keep well everyone.
Experimenting in my new glasshouse hothouse. Lettuce, begonias and a cat, so far. Very exciting. What else should I grow in here? All suggestions welcome.
Ok, so I’ve made that up… however, I have started a new project which requires heavy weeding and the rearranging of a rock border.
There are old pavers to be removed and rocks replaced. It’s always rewarding to see the weeds gone and a new project evolving.
The light is dappled and I can work at my own pace under the shade of the lilac tree.
Further around the garden I can see figs ripening with the hostas looking on.
After a day’s lifting, weeding and rolling rocks into place, I’m quite pleased with the result. Cats also inspected the new garden bed!
What are your favourite plants for afternoon dappled light??

Sixteen years ago today we moved into our mountain home and greeted by this gorgeous lilac. Still flowering today. Love this time of year!
I love this time of year, when I can gather up these gorgeous white lilac panicles and display them in this vintage vase. For my mum whose funeral was this time last year – All Saints Day. To all our loved ones who remind us of the things we love.
WordPress just informed me I have been blogging about my garden for seven years – that’s amazing! Thank you to all my followers and to those who comment and share their thoughts and ideas – it’s great to a part of your botanical community!
Bulb planting time – spent the last few days planting tons of bulbs. These were dug up from a large clump and released from each other to start anew. Happy gardening and always be … botanical. 🙂 #
Mid-week in the garden – weeding, raking and admiring the blushing rhododendrons.
Today as the new school term begins I am home and very excited to be a retired teacher. However, I am now calling this portion of life – renewal. May you too find your renewing moments this week – happy garden life.
