August is drawing to a close and our little courtyard garden is changing once again. Our summer plants are coming to the end of flowering and we are harvesting the few crops of tomatoes and chillis that have managed to grow. I've been lucky to have some success container gardening this summer. In the UK we have actually had a summer, numerous warm sunny days, not a lot of rain and so we have grown some decent sized tomatoes. Our herbs have grown well and have been used during the summer to add a little extra to our salads and dishes. Having the opportunity to regulary use our garden for impromptu barbeques with friends, a wine tasting and for relaxing with drinks after work and at weekends, has made me fall in love with our space even more.
Here are a few photos of how our courtyard has looked over the past few weeks...
Let's hope the sunny weather stays for a little longer so we can enjoy our courtyard for a little bit longer before the autumn and winter weather set in.
