It is a beautifully sunny weekend here and I am enjoying the last a few jobs out in the garden, preparing it for winter. We have mown the grass for the last time and tidied up the borders a little. but not too much as we like to encourage wildlife. I have to confess that I am a fairweather gardener and by the end of October will not be venturing out gardening until the weather warms up!
I have no idea what this pretty plant is which produces beautiful Autumn colour, but it has been badly attacked by something this year, although it does look like delicate lace with its holes!
I have lots of ferns in the shady areas of my garden - they do like a damp spot.
This rose is flowering again after a month or two. It is the rose that I was given to me when I left work last year and has the most wonderful blush to it.
The skimmia is coming into its own at this time of year, as do the trees and bushes behind our boundary fence which are covered in berries.
And of course Atticus is still enjoying his strolls in the garden, weather permitting.
Love Mrs Jones x
