It did rain today! The lawn didn’t get cut! The garden is still in need of care and attention! But there are things to be happy about. Hidden behind other plants I found self sown non stop begonias. One is a lovely salmon pink and is hiding under the back wall, and the other is a bright yellow in with the lavender in a stone tub. Quite unexpected!
In spite of the dire looks of the cucumber plants there are still cucumbers bravely growing and more to come. The same can be said of the courgettes. Regardless of this there is still hope of a few more courgettes. The wind hasn’t been kind to the courgettes. They have finally fallen over!
And the begonias continue to blossom brightly and keep the garden looking colourful. The self sown nasturtiums are climbing through the hazels and look so cheerful. An added bonus is that there are some variegated ones from the year before last!
All in all a lot to be pleased about! And I do love autumn. I love the colours of the leaves; the smell of bonfires and the evenings drawing in and the need to light the fire and turn on the lights. The perfect setting for reading a good book! What more does one want!
