A Cardiff Garden in September

Well we didn't get much of a summer in Cardiff this year and now it's officially over. The autumn brings with it warm days and cold nights. Lots of plants are still flowering and many are just starting to turn glorious colours. September is a time of fruits and produce, but not in this garden this year! A cold wet spring and summer have not given us the bountiful fruits of last year.

I love the garden in September. I love the changing colours and many of the plants are still flowering.

What is the best thing in your garden this month?


  1. Your garden looks lovely. You could link up to Annie's "How does you garden grow" linky to share your garden and see how other bloggers are getting on. You can find it here: x

    1. Thankyou for the comments and the link. I'll have a look at it. I love the garden but this summer has been so cold and damp that it's all a bit behind.
