Gloomy days but incredibly mild. The honeysuckle does not know whether it is Spring or Autumn.
Most of the day was spent clearing leaves, an endless task in this woodland garden.
Most end up in the copse. When Spring arrives most of this will have disappeared.
I also had time to cut back some of the trees. Little Grandson loves to come to this area and his safety is my priority. Still lots of clearing to do but I made a good start.
The lollipop beech look beautiful at this time to year.
Due to the damp conditions and the mild temperatures everything is looking lush.
I am concerned that if we suddenly have a really cold snap, how will the plants fayre.
I personally love the seasons to be as they should. A warm November just does not feel right.
Whatever happens, gardeners cope.......we just do :)
Just wanted to show you my neighbours pond..........it is on the boundary of the copse. I can literally put my hand in the water, it is that close. I love the way they have left it looking completely natural, in tune with the surrounding countryside.
Have a good week...........enjoy your garden, whatever the weather.
