August is here and the garden is in full Summer swing!
The sun has been shining virtually non-stop for months and we have had hardly any rain. Lucky for us – most of our plants are mature and deep rooted so they have coped brilliantly with the uncommonly hot temperatures.
I took a walk in the garden today and managed to capture a few shots of my partner hard at work by the Tea-house and i even caught a picture of his little helper (a baby Robin), which was keeping Stuart company whilst he worked.
The sun was out for parts of the day but there was a beautiful, breeze in the garden and the shaded areas were lovely and cool.
The garden is lush with green tones at this time of year in almost every shade imaginable, but there are still some flashes of colour, especially with some of the Japanese Maples offering orange, purple and red foliage. There are also some blue damsel flies flitting around the water, which is always lovely to watch.
Please enjoy the pictures i took today, shown below –
