I thought I would try out the new hen house for size.....it wasn't a good fit ;-D
Look at that lovely sunshine, though! Sunday and Monday were days of real 'Indian summer' weather. It's been going steadily downhill ever since though; I think we will be lighting the wood-burner for the first time this season any evening now.
This is the extent of our 'palatial' grounds ;-) Not only is the garden quite small, it's a rather strange shape, too!
There, 'Steptoe's Yard' is quite nicely coralled in more or less one place now :-)
Oh dear, it's a good job that the gnomes have moved on from their hamlet! It's become something of a temporary dumping ground. These are trimmings from the butterfly bush.
This bamboo is planted in a large tub ~ well, it's an old plastic dustbin to be more precise! I thought the poor thing had died but look, it's got new shoots coming through :-) Eventually, I will take it out of it's plastic prison and plant it in a border.
The honeysuckle on the hen house is still going strong. It has lots of flowers and buds. I wonder how long they will last ~ I'm sure we will be getting some frost at night soon.
Some beautiful autumn colours on this blackcurrant bush.
The big log-store is full so we are ready for the cold weather :-)
