The weather for October is unseasonably mild and sunny. Misty mornings are leaving plants covered in a fine dusting of dew.
All around the garden leaves are turning red and orange.
Nuts and apples are ripening, and even the autumn raspberries which weren’t looking very promising early in the season are coming into their own with the mild sunny weather.
And the last flowers of the summer are hanging on. So there is much to be grateful for.
