Autumn colours in Lincolnshire

4 months since I wrote a blog – what have I been doing!

The tennis court transformation is complete. All the plants have taken, including the 25 year old pleached Lime, (whose roots were submerged beneath the court) it even had to be clipped this year.

The Cedar that was brought from Italy has grown at least 8 inches and is looking in the peak of condition.


The bright red shrub is an Euonymus alatus – I planted 3 and the one in full sun has done the best. Doesn’t it look terrific? The Asters really add interest this time of year and create plenty of colour in October.


The yellow Indian Bean (Catalpa bignonioides) tree has thrived. We have watered a couple of times as the area is quite a sun trap.
