In my Garden

sundays garden 027

I’m enjoying the last of the Summer days left, and my garden is showing signs already of the changing season…these roses are the second blooms, still beautiful..take a look at what’s happening in my garden…

There are so many talented people and wonderful blogs out there.One of my favourites is Celia’s over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial who has shared what’s happening in her garden. Looking at the different Winter season I thought I’d share with you some photo’s of what’s happening in my Summer garden. We’ve been lucky enough to have had a rather wet Summer with many rain showers, which always helps with our vineyard yielding another great crop for this year.

Not quite ready for harvesting looking at maybe the first week of September…

In the vegetable patch the last of the tomatoes are ready, mostly those will be made into homemade tomato sauce. There’s still a never-ending supply of eggplants.

Our tree of persimmons is just overloaded again this year…however we don’t eat the fruit… but I love this tree in the winter months without leaves and the orange fruits are left on the branches to face our bitter Winter snows, a beautiful image.
