At this time of year, we can get some hot autumn days which is good when you have a lot to do outside.


It’s walnut time again

I am busy pruning the lavender plants now we have had a few hot autumn days. The last plant I will prune will be the confused one in the main photo.

The crazy little plant is having a second flowering. I will keep the flower spikelets for the house before I prune.

It’s also walnut time again.

The walnuts are falling and keeping me occupied for a while each morning. I took the first three bags to the walnut lady today to go to the drying room they lease out each year.

As you can see from the photo, it’s quite a haul.

Anyone for a walnut?
