The first week of autumn in the garden has been wonderful! The weather has been very pleasant. It has been possible to work outside without feeling that one is melting, melting, melting... (Sorry, I had a flashback to The Wizard of Oz there for a moment.)
I've spent much of the week weeding, trying to remove the rampant weed growth that had established itself in various beds around the garden through the long, hot summer months. It never ceases to amaze me just how much such growth there is. I've removed several garden cart loads already and there is still more to do.
I've also been pruning back the flame acanthus which has grown exponentially, as it tends to do during the summer. Next I need to prune the wild hedge along the back fence which has gotten out of hand over recent months. Maybe next week I'll get around to that.
I hope your week in the garden has been as pleasant and rewarding as mine. Happy gardening!
