It is much much colder. I don`t mind at all. I like the weather to be seasonal though I am not averse to summer going on a bit longer. We have had a couple of quite heavy frosts. The layers are piling on for chilly gardening days.
There`s plenty of barrowing going on .... chipped bark. We`ve renewed it all round our sitting area and along several paths. It is well and truly spruced up. And it keeps us warm.
We even got a chance to start clearing the big raised bed. Forgetmenots have seeded everywhere so I have transferred some into the shrub bed where rabbits have decimated the wallflower plants I put in a while ago.
