Yesterday morning there was a heavy dew, the temperature had dropped to 6°, today it is wet and windy again. I’ve just returned from La Palma where the temperature was in the high 20s – what a shock.
Wandering round the garden there is little to see, a few Asters and Japanese Anemones are giving some faded colour. Round the corner the Nerine bowdenii is suddenly in flower. The delicate Fuchsia magellanica Alba is hanging on.
Autumn colours have only just started but the strong winds, whilst I’ve been away, have already stripped some trees. The blackbirds are eating the holly berries so by Xmas there will be none left.
The clocks go back tonight. Little else to say really.
