The weather this week has been so changeable, with gales, rain (Note to self: thanks heavens for new roof) and amazingly plenty of sunshine.
So, as summer leaves Normandy and Autumn arrives in a blaze of glory here are some garden memories to tide us over until next year.
The wonderful blue hibiscus tree which we uncovered whilst clearing out the overgrown flower beds when we moved here in 1996.
It's been a wonderful summer for roses, must be all that rain!
The lavender was glorious this year, I planted it about 6 years ago after my first visit to Monet's garden at Giverney.
Giverny is also famous for the grand allee of nasturtiums and that was something else that I added to my garden beneath the espaliered apple and pear trees.
They don't have a black and white cocker spaniel hiding in the nasturtiums in Giverny though!
