Sorry for posting late. I had a busy week and couldn't find the time to write earlier.
The garden is slowly changing colour. There are more fiery reds and yellows around. The first leaves are falling. When I walk across my garden path, I hear the crunching noise of the hazelnuts that have fallen from the tree under my feet. My face is wet from the spider's webs. Although I am on the lookout, I always walk straight through them. In my garden house I have a quick glance in the mirror first, to see if I didn't take any spiders with me. I don't mind the small ones, but in autumn they seem to get bigger and bigger. The idea of having one of those creepy crawlies in my hair or worse my shirt, fills me with horror :-)
It's the time of year to get the garden ready for winter too. Sweet friends gave me a helping hand. We had the most perfect weather. Not too hot or cold and with lots of sunshine. We cut the hedge behind the greenhouse, which is quite high and too dangerous to do on my own. We cleared out the weeds at the back of the garden, we evened the garden path and pruned one of the big trees. It was a long day and a hell of a job, but so rewarding.
I can focus on the fun things now: pick the last dahlia's before I lift them, plant some tulip bulbs and prune my climbing roses.
Is your garden ready for winter yet?
Have a lovely autumn week!
