Autumn Yellow

Acid yellow fennel flowers add zing to the Autumn garden. Fennel seedlings have popped up all over the garden – which is great as they provide structure, screening, and pretty flowers which attract a multitude of insects. No frosts as yet so the garden is still looking pretty colourful. Managed to get out in the garden this week to do some Autumn jobs after all the rain, including transplanting some trees and biennials (foxgloves and mulleins) – October being the optimal time to carry out this work. The combination of soft light and gentle bird song out there is glorious.

On the virus front, from this evening people from areas of high covid incidence across the UK will be barred from entering Wales; police will stop travellers and turn them back. Wales is a popular tourist destination and many of these tourist hotspots currently have low levels of the virus. I think the police may be busy. Also being discussed at present is what is being described as a ‘fire break’ – a short (2 or 3 weeks) strict lockdown to try to stem cases and therefore hospital admissions. We will be notified on Monday if the Welsh government decide to go ahead.

  1. You have just put some extra zing into my spring, and I’m very grateful. So sad, though, to hear about the escalating restrictions, but of course they are essential. Our PM’s approach has been so successful that she has reduced us to risk level 1. Masks are still highly recommended on public transportation, etc., and folks are following those recommendations, we’re pleased to see. You stay safe out there, M!

    1. Your PM has done a fab job! I was just reading that she’s on her way to a landslide victory; folks appreciating her handling of covid and other matters.

      Many thanks, Gary. Have a fab weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Beautiful flowers! And yes, the NZ PM has done a wonderful job, I greatly admire both her and Nicola Sturgeon, they leave Boris standing. In the “U”K, I get the impression that Wales, Scotland and N Ireland are looking after their people in this pandemic, whereas England is looking more towards businesses and is less competent. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! I think England will join in with a circuit breaker at some point; with Winter approaching – especially if it’s a cold one – the hospitals will be very much under strain ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
