The triffids have taken over!
Actually, this is part of the Frieze art fair, which I inadvertently wandered into in Regents Park last week. This is the biggest rose I've ever seen. There was also a thing that looked like an empty loo roll tube, but made of concrete and big enough to walk through.
As I missed September, here's the garden then...
And in October...
I read an article in the Independent about taking a photo of the garden in greyscale, as it makes you concentrate on textures and shapes rather than the colours.I like seeing the shapes of the bigger leaves on the hydrangea in the picture below, and the spiky leaves of the Phalaris Feesey (middle left). It works better if you zoom in on the picture!
These are some strawberry plants propagated from the runners from our one original plant, given to us by a friend last year. Unfortunately the barmy weather (that horrendously hot weekend at the beginning of October) made one of them flower and it now has fruit forming, which will be in for a nasty shock soon.
Chelsea-chopped back in June. The darker pink one I didn't chop, the lighter pink I did. As you can see, the chopped one has grown a bit shorter so it hasn't flopped around all over the place. And it isn't flowering too far behind the other. This is something I'll definitely try again next year.
These are the last of the raspberries and tomatoes.
Fentongollan Farm in Cornwall. Ive planted them in the back garden.
Not long now until garden at the beginning of November!
