I took a few pictures of how my garden looks at the moment, there is not a lot of beauty left but that is normal for October. The weekend was sunny and warm but now it is raining very hard. Not that I mind as we need this water for the garden.
I find it always sad to see all the flowers going, the leafs falling and most of the garden boring and brown but as you can see, the skimmia is already ready to flower in Spring, isn’t that amazing !!?
Have a great week and thanks for visiting.
Today is September 19th and we can feel, see and smell Autumn is here. Summer was cool and wet with here and there a few hot days. I have been taking pictures this month and you can see how nature is changing. Despite all the rain we had it is still dry but we live on sandy soil and it doesn’t keep water for long.
I hope you”ll all have a great Autumn. Thanks for visiting and keep safe.
A few days ago we had a warm and sunny afternoon and we went for a walk in a nearby nature reserve to take some pictures.
We didn’t see the cows but we know they are there, it is a big reserve. Alas we didn’t see any of the bigger animals, only birds and insects and lots of dung, really a lot !
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting !
I just got a message from WordPress to let me know that today is the day I have been blogging for 10 years.
The blog I have now is the third. The first and the second one are lost. I can still see what is written but I can’t add new posts due to codes I forgot to note down.
My first blog was called “gwenniesgarden”, the second was “gwenniesworld”, as I didn’t want to change the name drastically I named my 3rd blog “gwenniesgardenworld”, it’s not really creative, I know but I hoped my friends could find me more easy.
Thank you all for your support, without you I wouldn’t have lasted a year.
As you can see I haven’t much to show you for this month. As I told you before we have a really odd Summer this year with lots of rain and cold for the time of the year. Once in a while we have a nice sunny and warm day, sometimes 2 but that’s about it. Many of my flowers have rotted before they even could open. I go looking in my garden several times a day hoping there is a flower that is nice enough to take a picture of. I am not complaining, we didn’t have floods nor fire like many other parts in the world.
Take care and stay safe !
Yesterday was a nice day, dry for a change so we went to the arboretum to take a few pictures. Alas the rain and storms we had lately damaged a lot of flowers but I found some that were still beautiful.
I hope you are all ok. Take care and thanks for your visit !
