Weekend jobs

It's a beautiful sunny weekend, although the mornings are definitely getting cooler. So, this weekend it's a case of:
  • aerating the lawn (one of last weeks jobs not yet done)
  • carry on weeding
  • chopping down the dead heads on some of the Achillea, to try & stop it seeding like it did last year
  • thin out the Cerinthe seedlings - another plant that spreads itself around a bit. Beautiful in early summer.

The insects are getting fewer in the garden, but it's been a great year for butterlies, lke this Peacock on the Buddleia 'Harlequin'.

Thank you Snohare - my husband took it. It's been a fantastic year for flutterbys in our garden and there's still plenty around!
