It's May. Nominally autumn but feeling very wintery.
The chill air bites in the mornings and evenings, the scarves are out, umbrellas are by the door.
The garden has been calling for rain and today it's here. The fire will be lit soon.
Moment to moment, day to day the garden changes in autumn as the leaves change and fall, the light softens.
The last of the roses and cosmos are still blooming, I spy an occasional windflower and dahlia. Our vegies are finished, the salad leaves gone to seed.
For the first time I've raided the neighbour's garden as well - those red hips were just too good to resist and ours are gone to an over vigorous pruner.
Each month I link with lovely people to share mood boards of what's happening in our gardens.
How does your garden grow?
