Apologies, I forgot yet again that it was the end of the month…
Nothing has changed since I last updated on the garden, I don’t actually think anything has come into bloom that wasn’t in the last one… I’m not so sure it’s worthwhile posting anything to be honest.
It’s been just so incredibly dry here, there are garden jobs I need to do plants that need planting and I’ve been waiting for a wet spell to do it, but just never happens and the ground is so hard. Last week I think it was, I decided to bite the bullet and move some Asters that were down near the kitchen in the Buddleja border so I could then plant the new Geranium… Well neither spade nor fork could get any deeper than an inch. In the end I had to soak it for half an hour and then go back later.
Veronicastrum is coming to its end… I hope next year they will make more of a statement.
Monkshood too is not far off finishing, I think I will chop it back when it does.
Stipa is looking very pretty and whispy
I came across this beautiful moth last week… Something must’ve disturbed it out of its hiding place
Oh yes I need to get back on track, this is an end of month view!
The flat-topped Aster seems to be in full flow… Of course it’s nice that it’s already blooming, however I am worried that at this rate I’ll have nothing in September/October because it’s bloomed so early.
The grass is gradually getting worse, I’ve given it a quick watering but it still needs a good drench.
And I’ll leave you with Cotoneaster berries ripening…
And a view taken from an upstairs window… This isn’t a photo I take often enough, although now it’s largely blocked by the Buddleja being in bloom.
