stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
As you know, I love my garden so I thought I’d share a few pics of what is left as summer is drawing to a close. I’m not much of a gardener but I love to be outside pottering, it’s a good break from quilting. Everything is a bit trial and error and things got very out of hand when we were travelling back and forth across the pond. I’ve been pruning bushes that looked like trees and the underplanting was competing with the overplanting. Some areas are starting to look alright though and I enjoy the constant sculpting and refining 🙂
There are still a few Sweetpeas hanging on and Hubs chillies are starting to form.
We might get to harvest the peaches this year if they can just hang on a little longer! The plant was a birthday gift last year and unfortunately the fruit all dropped before they were ripe. Fingers crossed.
This planter salvaged/gifted from our neighbour has flowered all summer under the shade of the hazel.
The new veggie patch (aka “The hole in the lawn” has worked out really well. Tarragon grown from seed in the old wooden tub and plenty of horseradish for the winter.
The runner beans are still standing and producing and various tomatoes, sunflowers and Nicotianas seeded themselves from the compost to fill in the gaps 🙂
We’ll be more organised next year!
Last years chillies performing again this year against our repurposed, wall mounted fence.
A cheeky late flowering Clematis in it’s new terracotta pot.
You know it’s the end of summer when the Blackeyed Susans start to flower.
We had some rain last week that has brought the parched grass back, so we had to mow it.
That’s something we’ve not had to do much of this year in Kent, it’s been a scorcher!
