I hadn’t been to the plot since Sunday so despite it being cold and windy I took a quick stroll round this morning.
The dustbin lid pond was iced over, as was the nearby water tank. Not surprisingly it’s now all looking rather bare and bleak but there are still a few pot marigolds flowering.
So is the rose Pretty Lady
Both of these started flowering back in early June and have been blooming almost continuously since then.
The blackthorn and hawthorn have now lost their leaves, and the stems on the dogwood are showing cherry red.
It’s been a good year, thankfully making up for last year, and let’s hope that next season will be even better for all of us.
Tuesday’s Sofa flying post Happiness Is is much more appropriate for the time of year.
Have a good weekend!
