My plan for today was to give the garden a bit of an overhaul. It’s starting to look very untidy and all my summer flowers seem to be fading away. So this morning, I went to B&Q for some more compost and a few plants to brighten up the garden for Autumn. I felt quite pleased with myself when I got home, so I grabbed my trowel and got to work straight away.
And then the rain came.
So while I wait for the rain to pass, I thought I might as well show you what I bought. The colours of these plants are making me feel very autumnal and I think they all compliment eachother well. You will see an ornamental Kale, a couple of heathers, a bay plant, rosemary (perfect for winter cooking) and a few mini cyclamen, which should flower throughout Autumn. How gorgeous is the ornamental Kale! It just looks like a purple cabbage.
Right, there is a glimmer of sunshine and a bit of blue sky, fingers crossed the rain has passed.
Time to get planting.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! x
