It’s beginning to feel a little autumnal and the garden is changing.
Here’s what it looks like right now.
It looks a little bare, compared to earlier in the year, but thanks to my efforts to make sure something is always flowering for the bees, we still have some colour and will continue to.
The missing circle of turf is for my new plum tree, which should arrive by the end of next month. I’m making sure I’m ready because I don’t have a specific date for it’s arrival. I’ve got stakes and ties ready to go.
The borders is looking a bit brown, though some of that may be due to dry weather.
We have a new outlook and more light in the garden now. Our neighbours are cutting down their big willow tree.
I’m sad to see it go, and I’m sure the birds are too, but it will bring more sun into our patch.
One area that will get more light is the meadow, which we have finally finished cutting.
The first half was done previously. The hay dried, and was cut up and put in the compost. We then had to wait for some wet weather to pass, and now it’s finally all down.
I move the hay piles about while they dry so it doesn’t get too soggy at the bottom, and today when moving one pile out hopped a few baby frogs! 🙂 And there were a couple of slow worms as well! 😀 Definitely a record for the amount of frogs I’ve seen in my garden.
I plan to leave some hay in places around the garden so our wildlife can continue to hide in it, as well as the dead wood and rocks I have about the place.
How’s your garden fairing?
