Where’s the summer gone?

Finally turned off the PC this evening and thought I’d take a lap round the garden with the dogs… It’s August 2nd and I’m wearing a jumper .. a jumper!! What’s going on? Where’s the summer gone? I’ve barely used the electric fans this year and only watered the garden 3 times. It saves money but still…
I suppose I could take the time to do some stitching. Or maybe make some more patterns to go in the shop

However the plants – and of course the lawn – are growing exceptionally well. They don’t care where’s the summer gone! I’ve had to trim the buddleias 3 times already and completely trim the physalis (Chinese lanterns) as the rain has made them all bow down.
Apparently summer’s coming next week with a whopping 27° so I’ll soon be complaining that it’s too hot!
Had a whip around taking snaps of some of the plants….see below
I could spend hours taking snaps of the plants and animals (when they don’t move !). Thank goodness it’s all digital now or it would cost an absolute fortune to develop.

Thanks for reading
