Littlebury in August

I started our garden in spring with tiny plants. I didn’t want an instant garden at the time, I wanted a garden that would grow and develop over years. This plan made sense in my head but has meant that throughout most of summer it’s looked a little… bare. But finally, in late summer it’s starting to take some shape.
