Did somebody tell the summer it’s time to shift along to make way for autumn? That’s how it has felt in my garden this week.
The sweet peas and strawberries are finished and the tomatoes are stubbornly refusing to budge further along in their ripening process. I think they’re waiting for a spell of warm sunshine that may never come.
Even though the paddling pool has been put away and it feels like a chapter has ended, we’ve still been taking every opportunity we get to potter round the garden.
We’ve been on daily apple collecting missions.
Sadly they fall directly onto pavers, thanks to a stupid decision made by the previous house owner to pave beneath the apple tree. Unless they fall into my hands, they smash onto the slabs and bruise instantly.
I’m sure they’ll still be delicious cooked up into apple sauce or an apple pie. The ones I can get to before the worms do anyhow!
The cooler weather has been great for the herbs and the little blue flowers in hanging baskets. They were looking a little sad at the height of summer so I’m happy to see they’ve pulled through and are flourishing.
Oh and of course the grass continues to grow up between the pavers at a faster rate than I can pull it out.
I wonder what’s growing in Mammasaurus’s garden this week…Clickety click below to find out.
