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'.

  1. Those leaves are hot!!! Beautiful!

  2. Lovely red tree. It's stunning!

  3. I think that maybe you and I are birds of a feather.

    I've loved perusing your posts. Gardening in my small garden is what keeps my life in perspective.

    Thanks for the posting,
