The weather has been amazing for October with warm days and sunshine but that is about to change. Cold weather is forecast and yesterday after a sunny morning the temperature dropped as the day went on and in the afternoon we had a hail shower just after I had taken these photos.
My husband has just cleared the veg plot ready for the winter. There is a row of leeks remaining and one patch of potatoes at the bottom left of the photo. He planted the self seeded primulas from the veg plot into little terracotta pots.
We have cut the others down but have left this one a bit longer to let the last flower have it’s time.
I love the way the sedum flowers get darker later into autumn but still give a lovely splash of colour.
We always try to last out without putting the heating on until November and I stay in flip flops until then too but last night we gave in and switched the heating on. This morning I put my boots on for the first time since spring.
We are only a few days early and it feels like winter is on the way. I don’t think there will be late summer flowers in the garden for much longer.
