summer turning into fall

Always when the last days of summer are upon us
 something changes
in the smell of the garden :
more "earththy"

The temperature was still rather good,
though the sun was hardly there,
so it was excellent weather
to work in the garden.

Verbena bonariensis
(they always prefer a narrow crack instead of open ground)

... and lots of busy spinners weaving sticky threads

I also visited my dear garden friend R
who is my great garden-inspiration !
she really has green fingers 

It was fun to finally visit her allotment
where she grows vegetables but also lots of flowers

I went home with some plants,
cucumbers, blackberries and raspberries

  1. The spider photo really demonstrates the mechanics of her web weaving...I've always been a little shy about watching too closely...thank you for posting it.

  2. Ja, het was perfect tuin weer! Vriendin R heeft een leuke tuin zeg... ziet er heel gezellig uit.
