I know, you are thinking how do garden and parking go together - is she planning to park in the garden - no, rest assured I am not! It's just that both things happened on the same day,
My dear hubby parked my car for me. For some reason he feels that he has to park it in the plants. I have no idea why, he cannot give an explanation. Just one of those things apparently. I fail to see how it is so hard, and please note that if he parks his car here, he is never in the plants! This is his parking.
And this is mine...
See, loads more space to get in and out and round to the back to put stuff in the boot (trunk).
Anyway, just let it go I tell myself!!
Here are a few pics I took whilst gathering evidence of my car in parked in the plants.
Later in the day a little clearing up was done in the garden. We have two oak trees and an apple tree the same size as the oak trees in our garden, so we produce a lot of acorns and a lot of tiny but very hard and bitter apples. They need a lot of raking up, but they are not as much fun as the leaves are later on!
Here are the trees and the beautiful clouds that were scudding across the sky.
Sorry, had to show these pics so I could use the word scudding!!
The bees are still at the lavender in the garden, I cannot believe it.
A bit worried about the size of this dragonfly though...
The Hypericum is flowering for a second time, and I noticed (despite announcing to all a couple of days ago that this was NOT happening) that the honeysuckle is flowering again. What is with these crazy plants! Not complaining though, it is lovely to see them.
The grapes are still ripening away, the birds haven't found them yet!
The sacred bamboo will have lots of berries. The birds never eat these for some reason - perhaps they know they are sacred!
Happy days though, and pumpkin will soon be dragged out of the flower border to sit on the front step and look all autumny and halloweeney (real words, I made them up!).
