Hello all! I am very sad to see October fly past so quickly this year, being so busy with the house renovations has just taken up so much time, and annoyingly I've been ill for the last few days so haven't felt up to my usual Halloween festivities, except for putting together a little display on the fireplace which cheered me up as I slouched under a blanket in front of the telly (Hocus Pocus was on Film4 which made my Halloween! One of the best!)
I am now wishing it can get chillier out there so we can start feeling a little more seasonal, I can't believe how mild it has been, the garden is definitely a bit confused by it all! I was pleased to find this surprise little squash hiding in the patch, just in time for halloween! I had no luck growing squashes and pumpkins this year, I will try a different part of the garden next year, they evidently needed richer soil. More signs of confusion from this mild autumn include the roses flowering again, the tomatoes continuing to ripen in the greenhouse with the sunshine and a jolly dragonfly zooming around the pond in the woods, I have been escaping on lots of woodland walks!
Hoping you have a lovely weekend and a great start to November....how can it be November???
Thanks for reading!
