For me, Autumn time is the prettiest and most amazing time of the year .

Time to tidy up the garden after summer flowering  has died down. Pruning and weeding, leaving some plants with seed heads for the birds. I have put some old pots in secluded places for any furry little creatures that may want to hunker down for the winter. I like to know that I have left nothing undone, that everything is tidy for next year.

Planting bulbs is not my favourite task but when spring arrives and tulips and daffodils pop up then I will be glad I perservered.

Talking of furry creatures I have a few collectibles of the  'Brambly Hedge' mice, plates and books by the famous author Jill Barklem. Have a browse on my website. https://maddyvintagehostess.patternbyetsy.com/shop/14062558/brambly-hedge-gifts
