Someone seems to have tidied up after the Leaf Thief because it certainly wasn’t only my efforts that have left the paths largely leaf free at the turn of yet another month. As many garden bloggers – in the UK at least – will be proclaiming, it is nothing like the start of the Decembers we remember from the past. Who knows what the rest of the month will bring, or the first few months of 2016?
Today though, here is the view over the paved area immediately behind the house:
The streamside grass (where I noticed some green spears of crocus today) and the shrub border:
The woodland looks so different at this time of year:
From Bill’s chimney, looking out over the herbaceous borders, the two borders on the left still needing their overhaul:
The same borders from ground level:
The clematis colonnade and the heuchera bed around the Acer griseum:
The woodland edge border from both directions – noticed the flopped Red Dragon in the second picture:
The three bold borders:
The blue & white borders:
The rose garden:
Retracing our steps but veering to the right behind the sitooterie we now pass the special snowdrop border with its delights and disappointments to come:
Almost back at the house the current small project is on hold till drier weather, but the path has been widened and enough of the existing wall dismantled to allow it be realigned – not surprisingly I am itching to get on with it!
We are not at home at the moment and this post is being written on a spanking new but very portable tablet, a new experience for me so I am having to learn as I go along, the WordPress app being a little different from what I am used to. If the format looks a little odd when it is published, then I apologise! I am not yet sure about adding a link, but nevertheless I would like to thank Helen the Patient Gardener for valiantly hosting this End of Month view for many years – do check her blog to see other gardens at the end of November.
