So the first autumn tints and mists have arrived in what might be my last autumn in this my first own little garden. I may be off to pastures green - and, of course, it may never happen. But there is as much to surprise and delight me here as ever - even though I am having to curtail my tulip bulb buying passion.
We had a really dry patch during September when many things seemed almost to stop growing. The dahlias have been incredibly slow and some are still only just forming their first buds. I hope they make it before the frosts. Here are some which have made it.
Small Garden Story
Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!
