Garden in August


Wandered around the garden.  Watched the robin families enjoy the mountain ash berries.

 
The black-eyed Susans are one of only a few flowers that survived this summer.
 
 
 Some kind of rot has destroyed my mother's iris.  Too sad for words.  It also destroyed my favourite balloon flower.
 

The mossy stump is thriving with all the rain we've had.

 
I've resorted to buying a couple of tiny boxes of annuals.
 
 
Although pretty, they make everything else that is dying look even worse.
 

This is the replacement miniature rose for the one killed in the hard winter.
 
 
 It seems like our summer never really kicked in this year. 
The weather has turned bleak today, cold and very windy. 
The clouds have that dark grey silvery brightness that tells of autumn.
I've decided to take a break from blogging.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of summer.

  2. Don't stay gone too long, you'll be missed x

    I know how you feel about the garden and the seasons, it's a similar story here. Sad but all part of the years variety I suppose.

  7. Well aside from the Irises, your garden is just as lovely as ever. Hope you enjoy your break, it's always nice to step back from time to time but I do hope you won't be gone too long! Mel x

  8. I tried to comment a couple of times but the comment section wasn't there - strange!
    Some nice autumnal colours and lots of berries on your mountain ash - I have none.
