Late September

We have had some lovely Sweet Peas this year.

Herb Robert is a weed and a bit of a nuisance but there is no denying it is pretty.

An unidentified shrub.

Rudbeckia in flower.

Visits from a young Greenfinch.

The Front Hedge

The front hedge looked lovely but had got totally out of hand. At 12 to 14 feet tall it was completely unmanageable.

So we have had it cut back to 8 feet tall. Still a major task to keep it in order but any lower and the birds might have deserted it. Lets just hope all the bare bits grow back out again.

11th September - some flowers

Some of the flowers still blooming in the garden:-



Miniature Rose


Michaelmas Daisies.

And the Snowberry is is berry.

Kaffir Lilies

A few years ago we bought a tiny pot of Kaffir Lily (Schizostylis coccinea) bulbs from a charity stall in Royden Park. Now we have them in three parts of the garden and, I think, their ‘children’ have travelled to Exeter as well. These are a few of today’s photos of these beautiful plants.
