Clever, Hibernation, Green, Colour?

Autumn brings a sort of "spring clean" to the garden, old & dead stuff has to go to make space for the spring. This means the tomato plants have to go too, along with the pesky white fly. A canny spider popped into the bag for a good sheltered web while the flies were panicking around, meals-on-wings to his home!

My fruit cage wasn't so productive this year, the weather was too awful, but after weeding and mulching I'm optimistic about next year.


Surrey is notorious for its huge number of trees, partly as a result of this lawns are terrible unless you devote all day to them. moss is nice & green, but not hard-wearing so I've seeded the bald patches. they're starting to sprout, reminding me that spring will come eventually. At the moment it looks like a pre-adolescent Green Man's upper lip, first shave in the spring.


Colour perception is odd: if you ask what colour the Colchicum is, people say "purple", if you ask about the cyclamen it's "pink", but see how similar they are together.
