The answer, we think, is to enjoy the last of the sunshine close to home, in our own gardens and terraces. This way it doesn’t matter so much if there’s a sudden shower or a chilly spell. Extra throws, shawls and cardigans are all on standby should they be needed, and it’s simple to arrange your garden so it’s a little cosier than it was in midsummer. When it gets a little cold, you can do all the things you’d do indoors – turn up the heating, switch on the lights and take shelter – and better still, there’s no drive home afterwards. Here are our suggestions for ways to spend time in your garden as summer wanes.
