We have just enjoyed our first summer's day this year. Hooray!  A stunning 26 degrees Celcius.

But already some plants are over and gone. And the hours of darkness are definitely getting longer.

What plant is the first one that heralds the end of summer for you? For me it is seeing the buds of the Sedum spectabile begin to colour. Fortunately, the buds are still pale green. Time for another spritzer.image

    I was thinking of making a bonfire of mine today, and then I saw two miniature beans, all of 1 cm long. Two beans!!!! I'll give them another chance.image

    On this estate, the end of summer could be when the crimbo lights go up! image
