Tuesday View (16th September)

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, we had a great deal of rain at the end of last week and over the weekend. The Perovskia didn’t think much to that, and the Centranthus also suffered a bit. But the view today is still colourful, with the pink Fairy rose still flowering…


And this Persicaria (which has a new name that I can’t remember) has been flowering non-stop since July…


We have had a few distractions in the garden recently… more of that in a couple of days. But today a tiny weeny snake was near our patio door, rather near my slippers!

If you don’t like snakes, scroll down quickly.

He was only about 20cm long, but very lively.

Probably a smooth snake, as that’s what we mostly have here.


Have you seen any snakes this summer?
