August back yard...
So here it sits teetering on the edge of wild abandon. The paths need weeding, the borders trimming, not to mention the pruning and cutting back that's required to let the whole thing, tiny though it may be, breathe again. I'm going to leave it though.
I think that given the plants have managed themselves to this degree of verdant lushness that they deserve a break. There are plants in here that I never planted, plants that I don't even know the name of, this bit of the planet is as self cultivating as any piece of hidden rain forest. This time when I return who knows where the self-seeded nasturtiums will have crept to, how big the mystery hollyhock will have grown?
Best let them get on with it.
