Now is a time when one ‘potters’ about making sure that maintenance tasks are up to date and that dead stuff is trimmed, flowers are dead-headed and unwanted invasives whipped out before they get going.
This is not the full flush of summer colour, but many plants are still in flower and a few bees and other insects are about in small numbers. After our tidy up things are looking OK. The ‘patio’ (garage roof) has still to be given its autumn smarten up as many things are not ready to give way yet. Its still looking reasonable.
The purple petunias looked like they had finished a couple of weeks ago, but have suddenly given us another show.
