Still Here!

Wow!  Has it been that long since my last post?  I don't know where the time goes to these days.
Things are a bit quiet round here at the moment to be honest, so I probably won't be posting as much as before for a while.  
There's been some brilliant thunderstorms lately and the skies this morning were looking very dramatic.




The wind has seen to the last of the apples thankfully.  It's been a daily job clearing them up.
A lot of the trees are still to turn colour, but this one is looking radiant at the moment.



Before the weather turned wild I spent some time tidying the plants in the greenhouse and was surprised to find the streptocarpus leaf cuttings I took a few weeks ago had all taken.  I've never done any before and had pushed them to the back of the shelf and forgotten about them only to find lots of little baby plants ready to pot up.  I'll definitely do some more next year, though a bigger greenhouse would be good :)




Thank you for stopping by.  I hope it's not too stormy where you are.

A Little Late Summer Colour



Hello, I hope you're enjoying the lovely sunshine in this curious summer/autumn that can't make up it's mind which way to go! 
  A few images from my garden this week



We're inundated with apples at the moment.  Every day the grass is covered in them and they need raking up before the wasps find them


I saw these three bunnies this morning enjoying a tasty breakfast.  I even saw one peering into the box to see if the apples were any better!


And this is why it's almost impossible to keep them out of the garden if they're determined to get in.  This hole near the fence has been filled in countless times, but they dig it out again every time, flinging the soil further and further as if to make a point.
Oh well, they are fun to watch!


Bye for now
