This past weekend we spent ages in the garden, pottering and finishing off little jobs.
There are several staghorn plants growing at the bottom of the garden, which eventually will be removed when we build our workshop. Though they are currently taking over that end of the garden, I'm still enjoying their display of graduated autumnal leaves in the meantime.
The apples are still dropping, our tree really is huge. I collected hundreds of windfall fruits from the long grass, saving the best for cakes and pies and the rest for chutney. I also put a huge box of them at the front of our house for our neighbours.
Chris finished the shed by fixing the window and painting the edge panels, so hopefully now it will be water tight. We also picked as many apples as we could fresh from the tree. We are planing to store some over winter and into spring, so we modified a couple of cheap ikea shelving units into an apple storage rack and attached them to the inside of the shed.
I planted some hyacinths, anemone, crocus and daffodils into a pot for the front garden. I'm looking forward to seeing them flower next year and hopefully adding some much needed early colour to the front of the house.
