Well, it feels like summer's winding down after a glorious few weeks of lovely sunshine. As I write it's gone very dark and the heavens have opened at last. I took the shading off the greenhouse this morning so the rain will give it a good wash. It's still looking very pretty in there. I love all the different fuchsias, especially the white and pale pink ones.
The garden's looking pretty tired now. I've been picking the gladioli, but seem to have lost my favourite dahlias and am left with mostly orange ones, which are a bit boring on their own!
We've still got lots of courgettes but the runner beans didn't do much this year and the plants I picked up from the garden centre turned out to be very stringy :(
So, Strictly's back tonight. Downton Abbey next week, and we've got a big pile of logs ready for the fire.
Roll on Autumn, I'm looking forward to it this year.
