Sit and Watch the Leaves Turn

Garden Log 11 May 08

Everyone must take time to sit
and watch the leaves turn.
~Elizabeth Lawrence

Cool days, chilly mornings down to 2C
Winter is coming
But the garden is still growing!

Time to tuck up the frost sensitive plants...
...frosts are on their way!

Wrapped up to keep the cold out.

Time to pick the chillies and string them up to dry.

Taking cuttings (soapwort) in the cooler weather
when they don't dry out as fast.

Growth...the pathside bed greens

and some of those Legume tree seeds are emerging!

Just enough warmth left for this ladybird
to munch the last of the aphids
off the bronze fennel. Thank you.

Nearly forgot the pumpkins for Matron...
the last of the Rouge de'Etampes (we ate the rest!)
and the little volunteer that braved a late start
back in the March heatwave.
