The sun is so low now the back garden is in quite a bit of shade now so I moved the small table and chairs from their place in the shade in the back garden round to the sun in the front so I can continue enjoying my lunch in this gorgeous autumn weather. 
After I had eaten I planted some spring bulbs in the new bit of garden. Hyacinth under the roses, daffodils along the hedge and some snakes head fritillary and allium. So much for the vegetable garden!

I have been very lax in posting this summer due to a hitch with my Internet connection and pure laziness.
 We have had a fantastic summer this year and all my fears about my garden losing it's magic have proved unfounded, in fact it seems even more magical. As I open the front gate it seems as though I'm walking into my own private world with butterflies fluttering to greet me.
Here are some of the bugs caught on camera this summer

And some of the stars of the summer

I have managed to tidy the shed and start making my candles again.
And the front garden is beginning to look like a garden again and not a wood yard
