This month I've been really bad. Still, as I said, the photos were taken on August 1st, just like I said. It's got to be said, it's not just the blog that has had reduced attention thanks to the job - the garden is not looking quite as well kept either!

Time for the monthly photos again! And I am so chuffed with how it's looking this month.

The back garden has filled out a lot. There's a lot more space still to fill, but the foxgloves I grew from seed - oh, two years ago? - have come into bloom and are buzzing with bees.The roses are coming out and the Gloriana rose climbing the bird table is looking amazing and growing really strongly.

Everything seems to have put on a massive spurt in the last month, and I had a real 'squeee' moment watching the garden this morning as a couple of blue tits appeared to be eating the aphids off the rose under the bird table, then sat (briefly) in the greengage tree. I can also hear the baby starlings squeaking in their nest in the neighbour's loft. Sweet! (Glad they aren't in our loft though...)

The back garden has been through a bit of a change this month, but look at all those leaves! Wow.

Yesterday was April Fool's Day, so it's time for another garden update. Sorry if you don't like the garden pictures! There is more visible change this month, really honestly truly.
