I am not sure where this last month has gone, what with gate painting, making jam, pickles, bottling and general running around. This is what the gates looked like at the beginning of September, when each gate was at a different stage!
Thankfully at last they are now finished. I had some mad idea at the beginning that I was going to paint all the bolt heads black. This idea has now flown out of the window as everything took so long, and as you can see, the front of the gates are now plain green; not a black bolt head in sight!
The days are getting shorter and the sun is now setting in a different place. This means our sunsets are just not quite as good as they are during mid summer. This was our sky last night.
