I know that I’m not the only one who has recently noticed that some mornings have felt rather autumnal.
There haven’t been been enough sunny days either but thankfully there’s still lots of colour to be seen with cornflowers, crocosmia, nasturtiums, pot marigolds and sunflowers.
The dog rose flowered early and didn’t last long but is now covered in red hips that the birds will enjoy later on.
Sadly the rose Valentine Heart hasn’t fared well again as it has suffered from blackspot causing it’s leaves to drop, and there have only been few blooms. I’m undecided if I should dig it up or give one more year.
