As far as the garden is concerned, really the only problem I have is a surfeit of grapes! I realise many would say 'lucky you' - however- there are too many as we are really bad at pruning out the excess, they are not ripening very quickly, they have PIPS - and finally the blackbirds and squirrels are fighting us for them!!!! What to do???
I hate pippy grapes. I'm not into wine making - I suppose I could juice them - or leave them to the wildlife? It seemed such a good idea when we planted it...........
Suddenly on September 1st Autumn arrived with a chilly and misty morning, and I realised summer was over - I keep wondering where my summer went.
Just to prove the season has changed, in a corner of the gravel garden, cyclamen have popped up their delicate heads.
Deborah who tells me she enjoys my gardening rambling in the blog is also waiting for additions to her miniature family - so this is especially for you Deborah!
Thank you for looking
