dear reader...

I AM, WITHOUT DOUBT, a morning person. I love quiet moments to myself to tinker around the house or garden while the rest of the family are still slumbering. There is little sound when I wake. Through a gap in the curtains, I can see the slightest peachy tinge in the sky, which tells me it is shortly after 7am. Creeping out from under the warm covers, the cold floorboards creak as I make my way downstairs. The cat seemed to know even before I moved that I was on my way, because she is already onto the second chorus of her breakfast song. Unlike me, she is very happy to go straight back to bed after her meal and, following some meticulous washing, curls up to sleep once more. Even the…

An extraordinary home Thank you for a wonderful magazine: the features, recipes and crafts are all thoroughly enjoyed. I was pleased to see the Twr Mawr lighthouse on the cover of the August issue because my father was a lighthouse keeper for many years. As a child, I lived at the St Ann’s Head Lighthouse in Pembrokeshire. My father took some wonderful photos in the mid 1950s from The Needles Lighthouse on the Isle of Wight. It was only as an adult that I appreciated our ‘out of the ordinary’ lives. Now I give talks about being a lighthouse keeper’s daughter, and it is always well received. Thank you for the reminder of a lovely part of my life.…

The proof is in the eating My brother and I baked the courgette, lemon and poppy seed cake, which I found in my mummy’s August magazine. We were not sure what it was going to taste like because of the courgettes and the poppy seeds, which we had never had before in a cake, but we ate it in the garden with our family, and it was delicious. Flora Stevenson, aged 9, Glasgow Friends from a wild island This pencil drawing was inspired by a trip I made to Skomer Island in stunning Pembrokeshire. I got to spend time with these beautiful puffins, among other things, and took plenty of photographs for my artwork. I am very pleased with the progress.

THE FEATHERED FORECASTERS Saint Martin’s Day, or Martinmas, is celebrated on 11 November each year and marks the completion of autumn wheat seeding. Historically, farmers would provide a cake and ale feast for their workers, and hiring fairs would be held for labourers to seek new positions. Rather like St Swithin’s Day, Martinmas also has associations with the weather. According to folklore, if the weather is cold and icy on this day, milder conditions will ensue right through to Candlemas in February. This is alluded to in an old song: ‘Ice before Martinmas, Enough to bear a duck. The rest of winter, Is sure to be but muck’ meaning that if a pond is frozen on this day enough for a duck to walk on, the winter will be a mild…

the hidden garden

TUCKED AWAY IN a picturesque corner of the Clwydian hills, in Denbighshire, North Wales, is a Grade II listed Georgian building. Blessed with splendid mountain views beyond, its gardens and woodland are ablaze with autumn colour. This is The Laundry; home of Tom and Jenny Williams and their three sons. Seasonal planting ideas abound in this atmospheric 3-acre garden. “It’s such a colourful season,” says Jenny. “The garden seems to change daily at this time of year.” Plants for autumn interest are spread throughout. To the back of the house is a pleached circle of crab apples, malus ‘Evereste’. “In autumn, its colourful leaves and fruit look spectacular from the kitchen,” adds Jenny. “We also have a collection of colourful acers, a weeping pear, a pleached lime avenue and a beech hedge…

benefits of a walled garden

There are plenty of advantages in having a walled garden like the one at The Laundry. “It remains more protected from severe weather and warmer than the rest of the garden,” says Tom. “We can grow figs against the south walls and possibly even nectarines and apricots, as it has been done before. The walls provide a great instant structure to the garden, both visually and practically, as they allow for roses and climbers to be grown against them, and they also make the garden more secure, helping to keep out rabbits as well as anything that might try to make off with the hens.”…
