The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful – September 2012

Oh dear oh dear I’m very late this month! Sorry about that but here goes…

The Good

Autumn’s here! My favourite season…

Pile of leaves on tile path

My first leaf pile this year!

Leaves on lawn with Layer Marney Tower in background

I find lime leaves make for pretty lawn confetti

The Bad

There’s really not enough colour in the garden. I’m going to have to do some re-jigging. I’ve ordered seed of Heleniums, Echinacea and other autumn/late summer flowering delights but there might have to be remedial plant buying (woohoo!) in the meantime.

Long Gallery view

See? Definitely needs more colour.

This year I have felt like I’m running to keep still for some reason (weather mostly I think) and so some little tasks have fallen by the wayside. ThisΒ  includes trimming back flowering plants that would have given a later flush of flowering. So it’s not just a case of needing more plants but more time too.

The Beautiful

Cyclamen hederifolium

These are just to the left of the ramp in the first picture. It’s a really nice little corner.
