This week we’ve been enjoying one of natures gardens, savouring the wild blackberry bushes and strolling through the long tickly grass. Admiring acorns and picnicking by a pond at nearby Lepe Conservation Point. I may not be a landscaped garden, the plants may not have showy flowers but it’s beautiful nevertheless… I’m over the mild inner-discontent that Summer is being overshadowed by the signs that Autumn is on it’s way, remembering just how much I love Autumn, my favourite season. I’m sure it will bring a very different offering of gardens each week, one tinged brown, yellow and orange as the leaves begin to change.
My own garden is still bee-central and butterflies seem to have moved in to join them. The furry bumbling bees are very patient and good natured, allowing Kitty to throw her morning crushed up toast crusts into the front garden, pelting their beloved lavender bushes with crunchy meteors. If I get too close to them trying to take a photo they land on my hands, something that I’m not entirely comfortable with!
