AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, MY VERY OLD NARCISSUS STILL IN BLOOM

The weather is nice and sunny at the moment and we had lunch in the garden for the first time this year, and although there is LOADS of work in the garden I am still enjoying sitting in a chair and enjoy the view.

Have a great day all !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MY GARDEN IS TIRED

IT DEFINITELY IS AUTUMN NOW AND MY GARDEN LOOKS TIRED, MOST OF THE PLANTS, TREES AND SHRUBS ARE EAGER TO GO TO SLEEP AND TO PREPARE THEMSELVES FOR NEXT SPRING. I OFTEN WISH I COULD DO THAT TOO……OFCOURSE I HAVE QUITE A BIT OF EVERGREENS IN MY GARDEN TOO OTHERWISE WINTER WOULD BE TOO DULL.
