I'm not sure this is such a good idea except I am enjoying doing it, but the lane month by month seems to be making the year flash by, it'll soon be time for holly with berries and Christmas.
But off for our monthly stroll and out of the front door you can see that the house is disappearing under mounting greenery, clematis, wisteria, evergreen honeysuckle and carpets of wild geraniums which thrive. This all gets the occasional unintentional helping of ash from the woodburner through the winter as you open the front door with the ash-tray and a Force 8 gale makes the decision for you. Obviously good for greenery.
The misty haze of bluebells along the hedgerows now fading and blending into drifts of white, yellow and pink
The dandelions now doing their very best to spread and it's hard to be annoyed with something quite this delicate and fragile
I spotted this on the way home and it wasn't until I downloaded the picture that I could see quite clearly that we are on the brink of a massive spider invasion.
Back on the verandah the holiday visitors are in residence and just adding this year's extension to their usual accomodation whilst keeping a close eye on the enemy who enjoyed the stroll as usual.
One of the essential stipulations to daily living pledged when we moved
here fourteen years ago, was that we'd do plenty of gate-leaning and
staring at this Tamar Valley view which stretches ahead of us every
day...and we do, so please feel free to have a lean on 'our' gate too.
