The Passing of Summer


Summer is passing, another week or so it will be the Autumn Equinox.


The view from our sitting room, early this morning, the leaves are changing and starting to fall.


Conkers scattered on the drive, the children will be delighted they come along with their bags picking them all up.



 Leaves blowing across into the garden.


A taste of summer, blackberry jam on toast for breakfast.


The roses are still blooming.





The last of the sweet peas.

The last few raspberries have been picked.



The summer flowers still doing well.






The sweet little Robins are always following me around.


A small leaf variety of spinach growing in pots in the greenhouse.

The peppers have been so slow this year, I shall have to harvest them soon.


Making the most of the breeze.


Always plenty to eat for the wild birds, we have lots of visitors in Spring when they are feeding their young and then it goes quieter in the Summer then they all come back when its cold and they are hungry.


A little bug and butterfly house this week bought from home bargains for £2.99, I like to help wildlife.


Have a good day, I shall leave you with an Autumn Collage.

  1. It's a strange in-between time here. No longer Summer and although there are signs, it doesn't feel like Autumn just yet. Your garden is looking beautiful in the sunshine and you've given me another nudge to get on and make my blackberry jam. X

  2. What lovely early-autumn photos, Marlene. I like the idea of a bug house to help wildlife. Your autumn collage is so pretty, too! And how lovely to have home-grown peppers! Also, what a pretty view from your house. We look over rooftops, mainly, but with a glimpse of the sea to our right (if we crane our necks!)

    1. Although the bungalow is on a road and there is a park across the road it is actually rather quiet, which suits us. The peppers haven't done so well this year, but at least we had a few.

    1. It looks good now but there won't be much left after the frost arrives, time to think about bulbs.xx

  7. The first year in many that I haven't made blackberry jam. You are blessed with a beautiful view from your window, my Grandchildren would love the tree conkers are a big thing for them at the moment.

    1. It is actually the first time I have ever made blackberry jam, I usually just stick them in a crumble. All the children love the conkers, I remember collecting them as a child myself.

  8. I could do with finding some conkers as apparently spiders don't like them and we seem to have an influx of rather big ones at the moment.
    Your garden is still looking so pretty.
