September has arrived, bringing with it foggy mornings, heavy rain and the threat of early frosts overnight, yet it also brings the promise of some strong sunshine with really good temperatures.

Thursday (7th) morning saw some fantastic early morning views with the sun casting a golden edge to some clouds with incredible scenery being highlighted while Friday (8th) the sky was cloudless most of the morning and the sun beat down to help dry up our gardens.
 

Now unfortunately is the time to think about tidying our gardens up for the coming Autumn and Winter weathers.

Clip those bushes that have grown a little too vigorously this summer and lost their shape. If you do it whilst its cooler, they won't suffer from heat and neither will you.

Start to gather up the leaves as they start to fall, that way there won't be MILLIONS of the blighters all at once and your grass will thank you.

If you have the room, add the fallen leaves to a leafmould enclosure, if not, by all means add a few to your compost heap otherwise, stick them into the Green Waste bags for the monthly roadside collection.

Keep on top of your grass cutting, your lawn will appreciate it, as will you come the winter rains. Before it gets too late, try to give it a feed with Autumn and Winter lawn food (available from the stores sheds) which will help it to survive the darker days and the cold and wet too. It'll show its appreciation come the spring!
