November Lingering

Frost has come for only the second time this autumn. As we move into winter, today felt much colder.
I needed 4 layers at the garden.
I am glad to see it, as many pests are killed in the cold.
Our main job was to cut back and clear the last of the dahlias.
I have stored them in the polytunnel, half buried and covered in carpet and weed suppresant.



The polytunnel is nearly clear. Steve removed metre upon metre of courgette growth.



Here are the very last of the dahlia flowers....pale and insipid, but still a joy.


We have left the sprouts uncovered and hope the pigeons don`t go to town.



At home the leaves are at last beginning to fall.





Some flowers don`t seem to know  winter`s coming.





















































Nice salads lined up for winter
and....

 

.....some treats.


Winston, the new pig has settled in well.



And we spent a most enjoyable hour with my brother and my newest nephew Frazer, this afternoon.
What a delightful day!
