We have reached the end of August, the eighth month. Named after Augustus, who became ‘First Citizen’ after the assignation of Julius Caesar (somewhat wisely he decided not to use the title Emperor). August, in the Roman Calendar, was the sixth month, because March used to be the first month. This is all far too complicated, so I shall get on with the task in hand of looking at how the garden has been in August.Quite often it has been quite hot, sometimes hot hot and largely warm. There has been some thunder storms and some rain. So all in all, not too bad really. A bit of sun then a bit of rain keeps the garden looking good, though the really heavy torrential rain has flattened some flowers.
Thompson and Morgan trial I am taking part in.
Now the season starts to turn, a few leaves have started to fall, the nights are drawning in. Soon it will be apple crumble time.
Thanks as ever to Helen for hosting this meme.
