A bit of an exaggeration this, but it has rained and blown rather a lot so the autumn clear up which we’ve been holding off is now underway. Gone are the remnant of some of the cosmos and helicrysums and we’ve dug up some dahlias and cut and covered the others. The wall cold frames are up and we will now begin to tidy up the beds, pulling leaves onto them and cutting back other dying back herbaceous planting.
Still there is still a lot of colour, remarkably.
And Dog is still involved…
