Today was overcast and unseasonably hot and humid. I cut the grass and had a wander around the garden. Many of our plants linger on, refusing to accept the advent of autumn.
We still have blooming clematises.
Although the leaves of the weeping birch are beginning to colour the Heligan Path,the beds bordering it remain colourful.
The new rudbeckias stand in a tub as they are having to await the demise of the nicotiana sylvestris which they are intended to replace.
We have white begonias.
Bees continue to plunder the sedums into which they merge;
but the prize for camouflage goes to this moth posing as a dying begonia leaf.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s powerful chilli con carne with rice and peas, followed by Victoria sponge and lemon meringue pie ice cream. I drank Croix des Célestins Fleurie 2014, and the Culinary Queen didn’t.
