How Does Your Garden Grow?

O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stain’d With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit Beneath my shady roof; there thou may’st rest, And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe, And all the daughters of the year shall dance! Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers.

From our four legged friends to our two legged ones, a brief glimpse into Grandad's garden, the vegetable plot is being tidied up, only a few hardy beetroot, onions, carrot and courgettes remain now.

Grandad has been enjoying his time in the garden, there's been much to do.

I've spent much time outdoors this week which is always a good thing. I am in love with the damp foggy early mornings that clear into bright, crisp Autumn days. I have only one grumble this week and that is that I have still yet to see a conker. My time will come I'm sure.

I hope that you've been enjoying gardens and outdoor spaces this week too, I appreciate that it's getting harder to take photos in the garden as the seasons change but to those who bear with it - thank you, it really does brighten my week. Huzzah for Thursdays x

Some favourites from last week include: Autumnal Amsterdam, Polesdon Lacey, a Chester nosey & Sheffield Park.
