A bit of a quiet time now in our garden, though there's still plenty to do, weeding, mowing and the near daily pruning of unwanted wisteria shoots.

Our Sorbus is doing well and has put on a bit of growth during the year.

After a good showing of blossom earlier in the year, plenty of red berries ripening.

I've re-sited the "tree" azaleas back on their round stepping stones on the lawn, I replaced them temporarily with roses until all the dead azalea blossom had either fallen off or I'd removed them ,

The lawn's doing well despite my footprints today in the damp grass.

The youngest of our rhodos have put on a lot or growth since I dead-headed them a month ago and have plenty of buds.

Lots of berries on our Sambucus

This Stella cherry we bough two years ago, although having produced some blossom and a few cherries, is obviously not happy in this big tub. It has shed some leaves already as despite regular watering it always seems to want more.

The problem is where to put it in a border as there's hardly any room.

I've decided to plant it in November inbetween the end of the azaleas and the beginning of the rockery.

I'll have to remove a couple of big rocks and these two Chinese witch hazels, plant it then replace the rocks and plants. It will be tall and far enough away from the side fence not to look out of place as it won't obscure anything. The roots will be in the shade of the fence.



The first of our many cylamen are starting to appear.

The Mayleen clematis in the big earthenware tub next to the front door had a bit of a setback in the recent hot weather despite being watered nearly every night, so lost a few leaves, but it's come back strongly, even producing a second show of a few flowers. We like the cascading effect, though I occasionally have to untangle the strands. Fortunately, the door opens inwards so they don't get damaged by it.

man, I like the front door!
post a full view?
I'd be tempted to follow that curve with the lattice above.
stately entry!
