I can remember the bees being so hard at work trying to collect the pollen before the next shower descended upon us.
And my flowers being so hospitable in helping them gather their prize.
I can remember the beautiful subtle scent of the different roses dotted around our patch. On the gazebo...
On the fences (this one being my favourite, the Geoff Hamilton)...
and over the garage roof...
I would escape to my beautiful pergola, built by Hubby, which gave me the shade I needed on a very sunny day (we did get some!), covered in the heady jasmine, the bountiful grape vine, passion fruit and figs, early yellow roses and an evergreen clematis. The contrast between light and dark has really worked.
And then spending evenings under this glorious canopy with the latest project.
These are just some of my memories of summer in my garden last year. Autumn is my favourite season, but on these dark, dismal and damp days, the urge to get outside and pick up a fork and spade makes me very impatient.
Happy gardening everyone.
