Slowly but surely we are coming to the end of a lovely summer. I say that because some of the days we are still having are so lovely that they still feel like summer.

However, most of the harvests are in, the soil has been turned over and the hay bailed.

 This year we had especially beautiful displays of rapeseed around us and this is the before and after view.

 Our garden however is still a little confused. We still have strawberries sprouting

Our B&B in the cotswolds still has strawberries sprouting despite the fact that it is  September

 and our rose bushes are still exploding in new growth

So it feels like there is still a lot of life left in this summer!
