A SIGN OF AUTUMN COMMING CLOSER

When the flowers of the sedum spectabile are opening it is a sign of Autumn  comming closer. The days are definitely shorter, the evenings colder but after the crazy hot Summer we had I am welcomming Autumn for once, normally I am not so keen. The garden is a mess with burned plants and leafs but the sedum spectabile is looking good, ofcourse being a succulent it loves warm dry weather. And this plant is a heaven for bees and butterflies.

OMG

I can’t believe my eyes, it is SNOWING !!!! I hate snow ! Luckily it is not cold enough to cover the ground and make the roads slippery. Snow is a problem here as we don’t get it often. Under normal circumstances we have loads and loads of traffic jams but when it snows…..disaster !!! and lots of extra work for the hospitals……
