Big fall


While I was mowing down the back yard on the weekend I discovered that a huge branch has fallen down from the Liquid Amber. This photo was taken a week or two ago. You can't see that fence in the background any more ... now it's a tangle of dying branches. I'm glad nobody was sitting down there when it happened!

Reflection:
Proverbs 11:28 (New International Version)
"Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf."

  1. You must get a lot of leaf-mulch ... what are those seed heads just visible on the RHS?

  2. That particular corner is home to a few agapanthus, a growing clump of an unknown plant, the beginnings of a privet thicket, all twined together with ivy. This is impossible to mow so grass that has woven its way into the mix sprouts seed heads ... that is what you see. Oh they joys of a large wild garden!

    As for leaf mulch, too much of it ... just wait for the autumn photos. I just push the leaves in that part of the garden into the agapanthus patch.

  3. The privet/ivy twining sounds ... a ... challenge!!

    I would love a large wild garden ... but only if I were retired ... which YOU aren't.
