I had no ‘great plan’ for the garden when I started to remove the weeds back in April because I’ve been undergoing a painful procedure up at Glasgow Royal that still has the major op to go but I’m pleased with the results.
A ‘gardener’ I’m not in the recognised sense of the word but my plants responded well to my ham-fisted approach —
The visiting bees didn’t seem to mind —
as they foraged for nectar in groups —
or solo —
But – all good things must come to an end sometime —
and with summer drawing to a close —
I have taken down the wilting sunflowers and their support structure —
storing the heads to dry out under cover —
so that I can harvest the seed and feed it to the birds over the coming winter.
The sunflowers may be gone but there is still a busy garden out front just waiting for another day in the sun 🙂
