Here and There - A Mini Update

Autumn is upon us (thank goodness) and the golden light, she is everywhere! We've ripped out a large portion of the summer garden and planted it out to garlic, and boy was the garlic ready for it - it popped straight out within a few days, little green points pushing through the soil surface quicker than I thought possible.

There were some casualties (camellias, lavender and jasmine, along with my potted lemon/lime) but overall, it's not been too bad.
