Our garden looks as though there has been a season long party and now it’s over it's time to clear up, pack away and think about planning the next get together. Leaves clutter the paths, the long herbaceous is border is still flowering in part, and my new box hedge is still, thankfully, blight free.
However, I love this season with all its reds, oranges and bronzes our local countryside is truly a wonderful sight to behold; the low sun makes everything shine just a little brighter. The one regret from this season is not keeping my usual garden journal leaving me more than a little lost in terms of what I have done and what I should be planning to do in our garden over the coming winter months.
It’s a very busy time for our team, with so much clearing, pruning, planning and planting they’ve hardly time to draw breath before Spring when hopefully we will see the fruits of our winter’s labours. Speaking of which the rain seems to have briefly stopped so I am up to my log pile to split some wood for tonights fire.
