I am hoping there will be some vestiges of summer left when our guests arrive in September but there are already signs of autumn approaching. The cherry trees are rapidly losing their foliage and the hazel nut tree is sprinkling the terrace with nuts and brown, crunchy leaves.
The eating grapes are turning colour and we have some large red peppers ready for picking. Overripe tomatoes are falling to the ground. The latest crop of French beans is not producing much but the new cucumber plants should be okay. Hurry up and get here my girls before it all disappears.

Oh those grapes are beautiful! -JennReplyDelete
I've been forbidden from picking any yet.Delete
That dog would steal anybody's heart.ReplyDelete
He's certainly stolen mine.Delete
Lovely photos- those grapes look tasty.ReplyDelete
With the gorgeous Rick to spoil, will your girls really notice what's happening around them?
Probably not, as long as they have food and drink and Rick to cuddle.Delete
Lovely photos. Rick looks quite tall and slim in that picture.ReplyDelete
I think he's probably quite sleek under all that fluff.Delete
We ate a couple of peppers last night that were at that same stage. Your garden looks a lot more productive than mine, I have just courgettes, aubergines and peppers (apart from leafy greens). A strange year at Haddock's.ReplyDelete
It's been a strange year for growing stuff, for sure.Delete
Down near Pamiers, my brother and his girlfriend have had a very disappointing year for vegetables and fruit because of the searing heat. I hope your property isn't quite a desert when your daughters arrive. Sorry to hear about your knee. A good physiotherapist should be able to advise suitable exercises in just one consultation.ReplyDelete
We've had quite a good season except for the peach trees getting hit by frost. The aubergines have gone bananas this year. I'm trying to rest my knee, doesn't look like I'll get that gate painted.Delete
I hope your bananas went aubergines!Delete
