The october garden

Dappled sunshine on pots of succulents, outside of the Apricot room's
French doors





















As we step into October I thought I would put together a garden update as the garden celebrates it's zenith in a small spring. As last year I've added to our spring bulb collection to give us something to look forward to and now to wait!

Dawn breaking behind the house the other morning

Everywhere those creamy white plumes

The Chusan palms are making more height now

The view from the courtyard now with the
added froth

Looking back across the lawn towards the house

The walk along the lower terrace

Rabbits enjoying the grass

Across the lawn again

another meandering pathway

Cannas


The cacti that somehow survives all weathers

Miscanthus in the Italian garden

An Agave tucked in the gravel border

The Hydrangea is fading now but One lavender is still
performing well!

The lavenders have been trimmed into neat mounds
in the sundial garden


Tall yellow daisies

Looking across the lawn towards the Italian garden

One of our garden gates

The rather gorgeous Agave i bought at the Tremenheere garden opening

One of the gentle grey borders
