August 2010

In the August garden the autumnal reds, yellows and oranges have gradually taken over from the softer pinks, purples and blues.
My white agapanthus has put on a spectacular show.

I have moved the blue agapanthus to a sunnier position as it has yet to flower.

Out and about the meadowland has been full of butterflies.
In the hedgerows the blackberries are ripening,
as are the sloes on the blackthorn.
August this year was the coldest in England for 20 years with a quarter less sunshine than normal and with a lot of rain. Hopefully September will be an improvement!

Mac n' Janet - Just remember to bring your brolly! You never can tell what the weather is going to be like, but generally it is mild at this time of year and we can have some lovely autumn days. Hope you enjoy your visit, best wishes Pj x
