that it’s nearly the end of summer when I start noticing that the mornings are slightly chillier and the evenings just a bit darker as they now are. I don’t mind as I really do prefer autumn with its cooler days and general feeling of mellowness.
I only went to the plot twice during the week, mainly to pick more blackberries, runner beans and sweet peas
Both roses have had a final flourish with the Valentine Heart already losing all its leaves making this solitary bloom look rather forlornIn contrast the Pretty Lady was covered in blooms for a couple days
VP (Veg Plotting) pointed out to me in this comment that there are a couple of watchable programmes on terrestrial TV at present. I owned up to the fact that I’d forgotten about one of them and missed the other! On BBC2 tomorrow at 7.00pm is the second, of five, programmes A Garden in Snowdonia. The series is all about the story of a year in the life of Bodnant Garden in North Wales. The other series is Future of Food in which George Allagiah has been looking at the growing global food crisis that could affect us all in years to come. The last of the three programmes is on BBC2 tomorrow evening at 9.00pm.
The art of allotments in the Guardian Gardening Blog during the week made me nod and smile as it describes perfectly the wonderful eccentricities to be seen on allotments.
Happy gardening and watching!
