This morning, as is often the case, the cat was sat precisely inconveniently.
Together we’ve been observing the birds in the garden, as the blackbirds fight over the treacleberries, and the blue tits bounce around in the elder bush. We’ve had a jay visit the garden a few times this week, which is a colourful treat.
The yellowing leave on the wisteria that escaped from the hedgerow and made it all the way to the top of the holm oak tree, are spectacular.
The foliage all around is spectacular, particularly when it catches the sun. I think that somewhere in this picture there’s that jay, but I can’t quite be sure of it…
Out in the front garden, the salvia ‘amethyst’ and verbena (forgot its name) are looking rather splendid, contrasting with the orange berberis and fading foliage of the lavender and crocosmia.
Finally, a pergola update. The wisteria has pretty much finished for the year, and there are always leaves to be swept from the deck.
Later this morning I’m off to get started with Shared Earth on some tree planting and hedgerow restoration… I’ve asked our lovely neighbours if they’ve any spare saplings in their gardens, and there may be a few tiny oaks and hazels donated by the jays and squirrels that can be relocated to the hedgerow project.
Have a super weekend, and check into the propagator’s blog to see more six on Saturday collections of garden goings on.
Whatever you’re up to, I hope it goes well.
