In the cottage garden

Photographs from the Semi Expat's little English garden on a sunny Saturday morning.
The last rose - smells so sweet.

The garden has held up well over the last 6 months or so with a little help from Hamish who lives up the lane.

Below - Autumn flowering sedum.

The rosemary is extremely healthy.

And the dear terracotta chickens - none the worse for the bad weather last winter - still pecking away!
A happy weekend to one and all.


  1. It's very pretty and I guess you love being back...but...oh we do miss you here!!!!!xx

  8. Hi Sarah - wasn't it a beautiful day yesterday? Am sure you are enjoying autumn and a little respite as it starts to heat up 'down under'! I left you a comment on your last post about the pub but when I went to look if you had replied, it's not there! Have no idea what happened....I was just asking which pub you were at - don't recognise it - although we drove past the Triple Crown last night and I thought you may have been there? We are always looking for new local pubs to visit...hope your weekend is fabulous & the jetlag is not too troublesome! x

  9. hi sarah,

    i'm in love with this darling garden. can you please explain to me...is this a vacation home for you? i know you prob have explained this before but i cannot remember.

  10. Your garden and the countryside nearby look lovely - think me & Mr TNMA need to plan an autumn weekend away/out of London!

  11. I am so in love with your cottage!!! If I ever decide to run away and someone needs to find me that's where I'll be :P


  12. Such a lovely place and wonderful garden!
