This week, I took a little walk around our garden looking at all the flowers that are still in bloom. Stomping around in my welly boots in the heat I felt a bit silly, but my poor legs need protecting from the rather long grass and copious weeds and many spiky things! Not to mention the bugs.
Everyone tells me I should watch the garden for a year before doing anything too major to it; I am happy to do this… I have quite enough to be getting on with!
I’ve already missed loads! I can see lots of dead heads and seed pods already. But, there are also lots of pretty flowers. Some of them need rescuing from the encroaching grass and weeds, but a bit of a tidy up should sort them out.
The back of the garden is crying out for more wildflowers and I am already sizing up areas for my vegetable garden. But, for the moment I am just going to enjoying having a wander (in my wellies!) each week, seeing what comes and goes.
