After days of rain I finally managed to get out in the garden. The high winds have bought down the leaves and the last of the cooking apples. The birds have been making the most of the windfalls, so I left those on the ground so they can finish them off. The borders are bedraggled and very wet, it is going to take a while to get this all cleared up. I spent 3 hours out there, the green bin is full, I got wet sleeves and a stiff back but I have made a small start. The weather for the weekend is not looking too bad for Sunday, so we will see how much more we can get done. Saturday I am off to the The Sheep Shop for a Beginners Crochet Class, wish me luck, I really want to make granny squares.
Here are a few collage of the garden
|Still a bit of colour - love the Mahonia (that's the yellow spikey one if you don't know)|
|Figs that won't come to anything - cooking apple anyone? - Do you like my wellies? I have a red pair with white stars too|
