Old Chicken Shed

This October has been glorious, beautiful warm sunny days and we have been without rain for the majority of the month. I decided as the weather was so good I would do as many outside jobs as possible before the onset of rain and winter. I have therefore been out with the creosote brush. The front gate is looking very good and I have just finished the old chicken shed, which isn't used for chickens but storing all the garden seats for the winter. I will bring the seats out in the spring and then give the a coat of Cuprinol.

Burrow Farm Garden

This autumn we are having a splendid array of colours in the garden. The summer's on and off rain has been perfect for some of the herbaceous perennial plants. The Kniphofia is looking the best it has every been and obviously enjoys a lot of moisture. I always thought they were happy with the ground being relatively dry, but I must be wrong.
