OK, I know that it is Thursday today but I did take the photographs on Tuesday so it is the Tuesday view of the garden. I’m sure Cathy at Words and Herbs will forgive me.
I took the photographs at about 7pm and you can see that the sun is at a very low angle; it is getting dark so early already; that’s one side of approaching autumn I definitely don’t like.
We’ve had a couple of days with thunderstorms meaning that many plants are looking a lot less stressed.
This will be the last post showing this view.
The plants change very little in this view; part of the design plan so that it looks acceptable even in summer and has form, texture and colour interest for most of the year.
Next week I’ll be in the UK, I have tickets for lecture by Monty Don (presenter of BBC’s Gardeners’ World for my non British readers) You can see the programmes on You Tube in good quality if you are interested.
From the 19th September the Tuesday view will be the Left hand border for which I really must come up with a better name. After this intensely hot summer I have decided to re-plant much of this border so that it will look better during the summer when it is visible from the east side of the terrace (where we often have breakfast).
I’ll introduce the border properly next time and tell you my plans for it.
Do visit Cathy if you haven’t already.
