After the frost I mentioned in my last blog, the temperatures have increased. It has been much milder than it should be at this time of year. There hasn't been much wind so the colours of autumn are lasting well.

The summer cutting garden is now over. I will be using twigs, cones and seedheads until spring. I made this hoop made from the stems of Cornus alba 'Elegantissima'.
