Thistle's paradise

No maintenance here since Spring when our gardeners left for the mainland.
After the hot dry summer all these weeds are ripe to drop their seeds -

These little Cox's Orange Pippins are also nearly ripe, the first crop!

The silver birch are leafy enough to cast shade. So hardy, no irrigation line here.

Dogwood, dog and me.

 Elm suckers sprouting - a stressed tree's survival strategy


  1. all good, so nice to see other shots from the trip used Barb
    ron E rocks. . . .

  2. also the English steel banded gate we had installed between the two properties - works well and looks nice!
