In the last posts I took you quite often to the country of my heart, England. This time, we'll stay with Noah in our garden. Let's look back to September and October, which really were golden. Well, not so much for Noah, but about that later on.
Even though we had hardly any drop of rain during this time, the garden looked rather colorful and...
The bunny enclosure has gone, but some ornamental grass has moved into the border.
The flowers of the anemones were so lovely, although they didn't get much water those days.
Well, that was how the garden looked like at the end of September.
Then October arrived and we had to do some serious pruning.
A fir had to leave as well, because we were afraid that otherwise the snow could do the job with less consideration of the new fence. At the moment it looks rather empty in our garden, but at least we can see a lot of sky and even sometimes a Meteoroid. However, the sight will change soon, but about this another time.
It was planned to prune the tree completely down to the ground, but Noah would have been very angry with us, if we had done that. Now he is happy and my husband as well, because it is my hubbys hammock tree. The boys may have their tree, my part will be just below it :)… a Writers-Shed is planed for me.
Frau Chacheli Macheri (die Ihr zurzeit am Häfelimärt in Basel besuchen könnt).
I was stunned how beautiful the roses still were this fall. This one is Snowflake in combination with the owl made by Mrs Chacheli Macheri.
I love the special fragrance of Glamis Castle, who is declared as Myrrh.
Oh dear, I'm just getting older and forgot the name of this beauty. It's something with Princess, I believe it could be Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg. But I'm not sure.
But this one is rose multiflora. I got it as a little cutting from Elke and look how big it became.
Till December the birds will have picked all the rosehips.
But till then I can get pictures like this one, because I have planted some asters below the rose.
It was a Hydrangea friendly year and it can still be seen in fall. Well, of course they needed a lot of watering as well.
Once more a colorful leaf from an oak-leaved Hydrangea. Just one of the reasons I love this kind of hydrangea. It's like a firework.
We were spoiled with sun those two months. Here I just caught the minute when the evening sun managed to find a hole through the trees of the near by Wood and limelighted the candel holder. One minute later all was gone.
Oh dear, and this morning my little raven caught a very icy snowball at his face. That's not nice, indeed.
Even the sempervivum tried to run off its pot.
The Clematis seems not to care. Can't remember to have been able to make such a photo at this time of the year.
And that's it with the walk through the fall garden with fall-cat. This poor guy had caught some flees lately.
That wasn't funny at all. Now he is wearing a neckband ... like a girl, he says. Okay, it's an anti-parasite neckband, but he's not happy about it anyway. Neither was he happy, when I took him to see the VET, because one of his teeth stood out quite strange. Thought he might have bitten on a hard mouse… However the VET took it out and gave me some medicine for him. Now he has only two or three other teeth left, of course it wasn't the one, who is responsible for his rather crooked snout. So he kept his remarkeble look.
Our old boy has recovered from this procedure. But we didn't tell him yet, that we have bought this for him:
Yes, indeed, food for senior cats.
Beside my writing stuff I was a bit creative during that time as well. Two bags became finished.
Ich nehme mir ja immer vor etwas fleissiger zu posten, aber eben... das Leben sieht manchmal halt anderes vor.
Have a lovely and cozy Sunday. I really would want to write more often here, but life has sometimes other things in mind. And I have to apologize for my English. I just keep on doing the translation of my posts, so that I don't forget the language completely, although it is far from perfect. Sorry about that.
Häbet Sorg / Take care
Alex & Noah
