Four great days.....

Road in front of our house

Road in front of our house

spent in my garden! I haven't spent as much time in the garden all summer as I've done in the past four days. I was off work on Friday, so got the lawns cut and strimmed all the edges and the ditches in front of our house. I never got such a late cut before so it should look tidy for a good while.  Did loads of cutting back, tidying up, weeding, planted some of my plants in waiting, put more into a nursery bed for the  moment, sunk some other pots into one of my raised beds, etc etc. Was off work most of today as well so got all my gravel drive and paths sprayed. Well pleased with my lot, but the list is still very long!! If only this lovely dry, crisp weather would continue for a few more days (weeks!)

It's great to be able to get a good stretch in the garden. As you say, so much to do, so little time to do it. Even the road looks great. :)

Gosh, I wish the grass was dry enough here to mow.

I got the grass cut here also yesterday and looking at the day today - dreary drizzle - I'm very glad I did.  It was a bit wet but I was only cutting it a the highest blade height to tidy it up a bit.  Daylight and weather are the big pressures on the garden from now till spring.

Looking very neat! You made the most of the good weather.

What a great lot of work! I'm only kicking myself that I didn't give the grass that final cut yesterday .... today the clouds are on the ground here!
