Some of these might even be pressed into use for next year’s Christmas cards!
I’ve already posted one general shot of the back garden 😉 so here’s one from the other direction:
Meanwhile, at the front of the house:

The snow might finally do for the annual rudbeckia:
And a last arty one of the garden bench, because why not 😉
It’s definitely less colourful this week! You can’t tell from the photo but it’s still coming down and is going to continue for the morning, so there’s likely to be another post later with some more arty photos 😉
We’re heading for the shortest day, and three weeks today will be Christmas Eve. I’m not sure where this year has gone. The garden is starting to look emptier and less colourful but there is still life – lots of evergreens, and the hellebores are starting to wake up.
With the patio light on, the garden looks rather atmospheric.
And because I can, there’s this version:

We’ve reached the halfway point! So I thought it was a good time to have a quick look back at the photo project so far. Week 1 was all the way back at the end of May – 28th, to be precise – and the garden looked like this:

A quarter of the way in, and we’ve reached 20th August:
Peak flowering time by the look of it! Just at the point when you couldn’t see the path…
Inevitably it’s going to get less colourful from now on as we head into winter proper, but at the moment things are surviving the early frosts pretty well.
Back to the normal posting time this week!
