Samhain

October 31, 2014 admin General Gossip

All Hallows Eve, The start of the celtic new year, and the beginning of winter. The garden still has colour in it . From the pink lilies, the naked ladies the aconitums and the pansys. The nasturtiums are still flowering. It will be sad when the first frosts come and the flowers suddenly disappear.

Well we are back from our hols. And thanks to good friends the garden has not died from lack of water. It was lovely to get back to greenery, hedges and tall trees. Greece was wonderful, but I did miss the garden. The bulb planting begins today, I hope amongst all the washing and shopping […]
