October Garden

As winter approaches, clocks go back at the weekend, the garden takes on an autumn tint. I have been doing some pruning but the Viburnum at the back is too tall for me to cope with, so I'm getting some help with the higher, thicker branches.

The Hydrangea has put on a good show but is now fading gently.

The roses are past their best especially on this rather damp morning.

 I picked the last of the tomatoes at the beginning of the month and the green ones soon ripened on being in the warm house. In total I had 6 kilos 680 gms 14 lbs 11 ozs. The largest weighed 250 gms. Luckily I had no blight this year.
