The Unfinished Garden – Fading Glories

12 November

Most of the recent jobs have involved sweeping up the leaves. Pine needles are the worst, they turn the drive a dull orange colour and are hard to gather and heavy to pick up and generally bring a fair amount of gravel with them. On the patio there seem to be more birch leaves than were ever on the tree and as soon as I come back in there are more drifting down.

It’s been unseasonably mild and he who mows has continued to do so. The lawn may even need another cut this week.

I thought this would be the last rose of summer, but I can see there are still buds swelling.

But still it feels like we are on borrowed time.
