It’s been a long time…

since I mentioned the two plot ponds, which are now mostly out of sight having been overshadowed by grass and other plants.  Earlier in the week I made a start on partly clearing around the dustbin lid one, which is towards the shed end of the flower patch.

I won’t do much more around either of them now until the spring.

There was heavy rain for much of yesterday so I wasn’t surprised to see the blue asters were looking somewhat bedraggled this morning.  I  took this picture on Tuesday when they still looked good.

And here are the white Twinkling Stars, which as a plot neighbour said are looking frothy.

It looks like staying mostly dry through into next week which will give me time to start tidying up, and weeding through, the flower patches.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    Your grassy areas around the ponds will provide nice hideaways for critters during the winter months.

    Ponds are so great for wildlife aren’t they, brilliant that you have two. Hopefully the asters will look a bit better after a day in the sun. My dahlias are much the same, but once they dry off they look good again. Hope you have a good weekend. CJ xx

    I love the blue asters and twinkling stars! We have asters here and even today I saw some still in bloom and attracting bees. I want the autumn flowers and colours to last as long as possible before the bitter winter weather sets in.

    Your ponds will attract so much wildlife being mainly hidden by grass and plants, that’s just as the critters like it. It’s amazing just how inviting a small amount of water is to wildlife. Yes, frothy is exactly the right word for your white asters.

    Frothy is a good description of the Twinkling Stars. Is there much more for you to do on the plot, or will it just be pottering for now, in-between plotting? xxxx

    PS Did you manage to get back to the Classic Editor Mr F. ?
