Goodbye summer garden

The rain has temporarily stopped, however now that we’ve hit September, summer is officially over. The last few months have been good to The Glen House garden; the grass and flowers have grown (so have the weeds)….

It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly a year since we moved into this beautiful house. The header for my blog was taken a fee weeks after we arrived; the house and garden look peaceful but somewhat grey. The garden looked plain and uninspiring….

Now, it is full of colour and excitement! At the start of the summer came the additions of a gorgeous little green shed and kennel that now blend in at the side of the house.

The newest member of our family keeps Dr Doolittle entertained all day, everyday! I’ve had to get used to him wagging his tail and accidentally whackingΒ the flowers because he’s so excited.

However, he left plenty of flowers to enjoy…..

This vibrant honeysuckle was my favourite flower that bloomed during the summer.

The clematis seemed to appear in formation….

There were plenty of lilies dotted around the garden.

This magnificent hydrangea is still out there, however it’s no longer this fabulous bright cerise pink colour.

The pretty clematis framing the front door…

This is my 99th post… Roll on the 100th…!

  1. Stunning garden. I love your dog. We would like to move to West Cork one day. I can’t think of a better place to be a dog that in Ireland. He looks so happy. What part of Ireland do you live in? My dad’s side of the family are all Dubliners. Emma xx
