Where have all the flowers gone......

* *




My garden is just about to change, I can smell Autumn in the air, my blue agapanthus and blue hydrangeas have finished and ready for me to cut away. The leaves are starting to fall from my fruit trees and the birds have finished off the last of the fruit for this season.





This is my little garden a couple of weeks ago, each year we get more and more agapanthus flowers and this year they seem to be much taller than normal. I'm going to cut them down chop off the flower heads and save the long stems in my shed for a display that I have at the end of the year. The stem is so strong and when dried it still has the perfect green colour. Later I can attach fake flower heads to the stem, just perfect.








I have more gardens and images over in my garden blog,,, click here and have a little look.
