My Garden Journal 2020 – August

Back for another delve into my garden journal, this time to see what I had entered during the month of August. Enjoy sharing it with me! I began by looking at a few of our colourful borders, “August, the traditional summer holiday month, but to us it is more a time to sit back and […]
