Day #2889Title: Monthly Garden Project – November
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A few weeks ago, Storm Barney broke and blew down the good piece of trellis on top of the fence to the right of the gate. Ivy had practically destroyed the left hand piece, but I wasn’t expecting to have to replace them both! It forced my hand and today I managed to remove both bits of broken trellis and put up these new ones. I also heavily pruned the Choysia bush in the left border and added two bamboo log rolls around the shrubs to keep them off the grass in preparation for digging it up. It started raining after that, so I beat a retreat indoors! And my shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #11 – Monthly Garden Project – November.

Day #2860Title: Monthly Garden Project – October
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Still not much progress with the garden this month – the weather hasn’t helped, the last few weeks have been a bit wet. But I decided to treat myself to a little bit of sculpture while I was at Beth Chatto’s Garden last weekend. These three metal poppies will add a lovely splash of colour, even on dark, dingy days. It’s also the County Flower for Essex (there are some surprising entries in that list!) which seemed appropriate. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – Monthly Project – October.

Day #2837Title: How Does Your Garden Grow?
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was surprised to see how many of these flowers are still in bloom as I walked past this well-kept garden on my way somewhere today.

Day #2811Title: Monthly Garden Project – September
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The weather forecast has been threatening an unsettled week coming up, so I decided to pull my finger out and do a bit of tidying in the garden. A few things pruned, grass cut and weeds removed. More of a month maintaining the status quo rather than making great progress. It’s how it might have to be for a while until I can afford to get the patio sorted. Perhaps this project will have to run into next year’s monthly shots as well! It’s a little frustrating no being able to move ahead any faster.

Day #2800Title: Monthly Garden Project – August
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: It’s the end of August and I realised I haven’t taken a picture of the garden this month yet. So despite this also being my Day #2800 milestone, I won’t be doing anything special as I need to take this one for the Treasure Hunt. Sadly not much more progress in the garden again this month – at least, not by me. The neighbours to my left have replaced their old rotting fence panels, so that side is now looking rather tidy. And I’ve done a bit of weeding – but it’s been rather wet to get the grass cut of late.

Day #2764Title: Monthly Garden Project – July
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: I wish I could report progress has been made this month, but sadly it seems to be going backwards. The initial quote for the patio came in ridiculously high, so he’s not going to get the job! I now need to find some alternatives for other quotes. In the meantime, it’s been raining, the weeds and lawn are growing fast. Today was the last day I had a chance to do any gardening as the last week of July is very busy with other things – sadly it bucketed down all day so I took this by gingerly poking my camera out the back door! Hopefully August will see some movement in the right direction.
