We have been to Freshwinds for last minute checks before a break away.
It was a glorious day with warm sunshine.
The sky was so blue, making a breath-taking backdrop to our afternoon.
We cut back lots of Michaelmus daisies, helianthus and the last of the sunflowers.
They are stacked by the compost heaps. They will need shredding as they are too woody to compost.
They have given a tremendous show.
In the polytunnel the French marigolds continue to flourish and some very welcome radishes have added a zing to our salad this evening.
I found a few more stone insects.....only 9 to recover now.
The inula has suddenly decided to make a last minute show after a poor start in the summer.
And the latest mystery......
......what has been nibbling the strawberries?
Actually this bed is due for renewal so they are welcome whatever they are!
The miscanthus looks very pretty in the late, low sun.
At home, my latest crafts......
......and some sock toys.
I am gearing up for the village craft fair on 27th. November.
