The October Garden Part 2

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I can only repeat what I already said: You have such a beautiful garden. And of course, it causes a lot of work.

    Certainly a huge change from the wedding garden. Lovely still, but not as festive.

      It sort of happened; we had a good giggle over that! And the tidy up is happening gradually as usual. We try to leave the leaves on the beds and cutback the herbaceous borders gradually as so many creates – shrews mice frogs toads newts etc – use it as a warm place to hibernate. We are clearing out two beds to replant them over the next two years, possibly creating a meadow grass/wild flower and orchard area

    Your garden always amazes me, Geoff. It’s gorgeous. I love that blue lawnmower too. I just might be tempted to use it. But then, more maybe not. πŸ™‚

      That’s a scarifier in fact which we use to rip out the annual thatch that builds up over the summer of cutting and inhibits the grass’ growth. It removes moss too and helps aerate the lawn before we add topsoil (the gorgeous black stuff) and seed. Twice a year and it helps build the strength resilience and constancy of the lawn
