August was a beautiful month. Warm with lots of sunshine. There were rain showers but we were spared most of them during the day, the rain falling overnight.
The garden relished the rainwater and slightly humid air. The lawn grew incessantly and everywhere is lush and green.
Flowers are becoming fruit and the colours are deeper and more vibrant. There are some beautiful reds and purples. Buddleia, fuchsias, clematis and honeysuckle, a pretty combination. The garden is changing along with the air. There is a crispness to the shortening evenings. Autumn is just around the corner.
Summer was amazing this year and we enjoyed all it had to offer. Precious memories of a summer enjoyed outdoors, simple, easy and free will ease us through the winter.
So hello then, lovely September.
I love autumn. I can't wait to walk through a carpet of fallen leaves. What can't you wait to do?
