Through the Garden Gate October 2022
Think of the colours of an October garden and pink and purple aren't the colours that come instantly to mind, but they are the ones dominating our garden this month! Our time in the garden this month has included planting bulbs and accidently and very stupidly cutting my finger deeply with secateurs - that has taken time to heal!
The hydrangeas didn't enjoy the higher summer temperatures and lack of water but some of them have recovered since the rain has returned. I do love the strong dark colours in the one above. This plant has been in the garden since we arrived eight years ago and has gradually transformed from a pale blue to the colour we see today without any help from us!
