The Garden in Autumn

We have been in our new house for seven months now, and it has been exciting getting to know our new garden. During the Summer it was gorgeous, we never knew where the next blast of colour was going to appear, and now Autumn is here and we are watching for the changes of a different season. What will lose it’s leaves, which will grow berries or have spectacular colours, and surprisingly to me – the roses are still flowering now!

I have some work to do out there, the borders need weeding (again) and a few things could do with a firm cut back for winter. We are hoping to get out there this week and plant some bulbs for Spring – my twelve year old enjoys gardeing and I am hoping his enthusiasm will rub off on me a bit. Here are some pics of the current state of affairs…

The last picture demonstrates well that I need to get my gloves on and go and do some work out there – let’s hope for some lovely Autumn days this week so I can get it all sorted ready to hibernate over the coming Winter,

    Looks like a lovely garden. I think you may be in luck with the weather, at least for the next day or two!

    im actually finding that my garden comes to life more than it does in summer in the colder weather, we are welcoming all sorts of creatures at the moment including a lovely set of robin red breasts i love it

    Gosh seven months already, that’s flown past so quickly! I hope you’re feeling like it’s home now. The garden sounds like it was wonderful in the summer and again showing you lots of surprises this autumn. We haven’t done anything either so have much to do, at some point 🙂

    It is looking very lovely and autumnal. Don’t tidy it up too much as you need to leave some places for insects to overwinter.

    It’s still looking really beautiful. Like you, we’ve got some weeding and tidying to do. I told myself we would plant some more bulbs over half-term, so we’d better get out there! It’s great that your son likes to help. Sadly, my kids lack enthusiasm (can’t think where they get that from!).

    I cannot believe it has been 7 month already! It looks like you are doing a lovely job with your garden. We have been here over 3 years and I looked at my poor garden again today and thought I must do something with it.

    You have a delightful garden. I think that it takes a long time to know what to do with a garden. You almost have to watch it for each season to see what happens and plan for it. Mine needs some tlc too
