The First Half Of September Or A September Of Two Halves #garden

We started in drought and have moved into soggy saturation. Almost. Dust bowls have gone, replaced by forests of grass and a revived set of sunflowers, straw flowers and, well, pretty much every flower.

There’s been a fair bit of tidying up and we’ve removed a ton if irises from the pond as they had rather exceeded their remit. Now to decide with what to replace them.

I’ve been pretty much on my own, as the Quilt Show is next weekend and the Textiliste is being pulled every which way.

At least Dog is still there to support my efforts.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. 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.

    Your garden looks so inviting, (great photos) it’s as well you have a dog- otherwise you could find shrewd vagrants living in the trees…Enjoy!

  8. HI Geoff, it is great to see your garden looking so colourful and your grass so green. We are still waiting for rain and it’s been over 3 1/2 months for us (normal). Hopefully it will come soon and settle all the dust.
