We are settling into autumn here on the Island .We have already had frost a few nights and the garden has taken on it's autumn colors. I still take a lot of joy from the garden at this time of the year so I thought you might enjoy another tour around as well.
I love the English Garden magazine and I always admire their old wooden doors with vines etc. growing over and around them so this is my attempt at getting that English look in our garden. This used to be an entrance to our home but during a kitchen reno a few years ago this doorway was coming out . Instead of actually taking the door out and shingling over the hole. I thought we could leave this old wooden door on and fill in the wall behind it.So.it is actually a fake entrance with stone steps covered with plants so people don't stand there knocking. I know,I know,
I do come up with some crazy ideas but it works for me!
As you can see my Dad's old bike does get moved around the garden.
