I started planting some bulbs this morning, but the drizzly weather got the better of me by lunchtime today. 😦
The autumn light is lovely though, and the rockery is looking so colourful still.
I think little has changed in the past week, except for some tidying up. The Perovskia was trimmed to give the Persicaria Blackfield beneath it some air, an old lavender plant was removed and another Calamagrostis acutiflora (‘Waldenbuch’) put in its place, and the peony foliage that has already flopped was chopped back to stop some ground cover Sedums getting smothered.
The Ricinus I planted out in the rockery is still going strong, and the colours fit in much better with the autumn reds and pinks.
Please feel free to join me with a weekly shot of one single view of your garden. I have enjoyed following the changes closely and hope to continue for a few weeks yet.
To close for today, a couple of shots of the Acer, which is possibly at its peak now and looks stunning even in the rain!
I think I will give up on bulb planting for today… after all, we still have time, don’t we? 😉 I shall spend the afternoon in the warm kitchen making pumpkin soup instead!
Have a great week!
