    Spring will bring back the neat and tidy .

    You and your bricks, you can’t resist them can you? Lovely long views of your autumn garden.

    • Cathy says:

      Indeed – and the bricks were recycled from a neighbour so have been taking up space and I am glad to have created a project to use (some of) them. The planned new roses may have something to do with it…

  3. It’s looking lovely and rambly, Cathy. Intrigued by the mysterious brick-building…

    • Cathy says:

      Haha – yes, very rambly just now – and with the Golfer re-roofing the shed there are stacks of tiles and things around too, not to mention two large ‘shrubs’ I have decided to cut down which are waiting to be cut up, none of which is obvious from the photos but have entailed diversions in my rambles! I do enjoy my brick-laying, and having acquired a stack of bricks from a neighbour the project suggested itself as …. no, it will all become clear later!

    Intriguing piles of bricks there. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them. Lovely as always to have a ramble through your garden at the end of every month. It’s looking much more organised than my garden at the moment.

  5. I just LOVE the fact you have leaves lying all around, giving the place a casual wild feeling. Hope you don’t sweep them up too soon. Lovely pictures.

    • Cathy says:

      A casual wild look?! Yes, I suppose it is – and I certainly haven’t given sweeping up leaves even a thought as there is too much else I am trying to do at the moment 😉 Rather more leaves to deal with than in your own garden, I think, although with us having cut 2 trees down already there should be fewer here this year…

    I love your brick projects. Can’t wait to see what is going to happen. Your garden look pretty good for this time of the year. Very neat of you.

  7. Christina says:

    Busy again Cathy! I’m struggling to just get on top of the tidying up – too many visitors here to enjoy the lovely autumn weather we’ve been having. All gone until next week but we’re having a week of almost continual rain, yesterday was an exception so a good day outside.

    • Cathy says:

      Yes, a new project will always take precedence over the tidying-up jobs, but a damp (although not really raining) day today so some bulb planting and potting up fuchsia and pelargonium to bring inside instead of bricklaying. Hope your weather has improved!

    Is witch hazel native there? I planted mine because it is not native here. It was not easy to find the straight species.

  9. Cathy I have not been absent because I was admitted to the Hospital. Good thing we were already in Madrid when they had to join me. Now I am at home recovering and today is the first day that I take the laptop. Your garden is full of beauty in every corner, it is wonderful. I love the view from the kitchen window and the dark corner and everything. It is precious. Have a good weekend. Greetings from Margarita.

    • Cathy says:

      Oh I am so sorry to hear you have been back in hospital Margarita and trust your recovery is going well. Thanks as always for your kind comments about the garden

  10. I am always amazed to see the size of your garden and all your different areas. And every time I fall in love with that beautiful blue/gray paint you’ve used.
