Shadows are getting longer, which means Autumn is upon us. Its garden clearing time here, with annuals nearly over, some plants have cast shadows over others in the garden which has not been good. Its time for me to take stock and decide adjustments, and preparing with hope for the garden next year. The main hope being that the squirrels are not watching me plant my crocus bulbs over the next few days, and then coming to dig them up.
This morning first thing...the arrangement cast shadows on the wall as the low autumnal sun cast its light into the kitchen. I love the silhouette...... the daisy shape stands out...if you want to see Daisies head over to Cathy's Blog.
The material for today's vase has all been selected recently or this time last year...but one appearing only because some bird must have used it for a perch, and snapped it, is a stem of Perovskia 'Blue Spire'.
During some down time over the last week, whilst we were in Wales, one of my best reads was The Sceptical Gardener by Ken Thompson, it is informative, with lots of leads for further exploration. I've just ordered myself a new copy from Amazon.
