last day of summer

last day of summer

Taken today, it was beautifully warm and sunny- possibly the last day of summer?
Considering this was my first year of really getting into gardening I think I have done very well even if I do say so myself. I have just planted some miniature daffs and bluebells for the spring

You are doing well. Good job your garden faces out of sun. It might get rather hot for you and the flowers. Most plants quite like being shaded. Specially Busy Lizzies, Fuchsias which I see in your front pot. Mine do well in bigger pots. I fleece them up for the winter in a group and do the fleece up with clothes pegs, it looks awful, but the bigger ones make a good display, Then prune them quite hard for the winter. it is easy to do cuttings if you like one, as they root easily.
