Autumn

The garden is continuing to subside slowly. The apple trees shed all their leaves, bar those on the newest growth, over the last week, and the California Poppies have at last stopped flowering. The fuschias continue to bloom as are the pelargoniums on the patio, and I needed to do some finger-and-thumb work on some of the rose-buds that are starting to open, to remove the continued aphids.

Clearing the dead parts of the escholzias and some weeds from the front did make room for a thick mulching with the composted elder plus clematis from the pollarding in late May, which means that there's now room in the garage to move even with the two wheelie bins.
