In the blink of an eye, October will be gone. Mild, some rain but plenty of sunshine. Still wearing t.shirts for gardening. Still plenty of colour.
Today I could not bear to throw away the busy lizzies.
I think they will continue to flower until colder nights which are expected next week.
Dahlias are a wonder. Just look at these still going strong.
The Michaelmus daisies are finished. We cleared the paths and the bed. It was hard work. The roots, though shallow, were entwined with
the rabbit wire and most had to be cut away. It was clear for our sausage sizzle on Monday.
The garlic was planted here.
The fourth compost heap has been constructed.
It has been desperately needed.
The osteospurnums are now inside, still flowering profusely. I will not be taking cuttings this autumn but will try some in spring. They tend to be brittle and so I have put 4 short canes in the pots and strung around to hold them in place.
