Where is this year going?? We have now rushed into November - foggy and extremely warm!! As soon as the fog has lifted it will be like a summer day. I want to share with you 3 pumpkins - which never reached the stage of being carved... I am considering what to do with them - there is pumpkin soup, jam and chutney - but now I have written this I realize I shall have to do all three. Autumn is such an "orange" time - the pumpkins are deep yellow, the marigolds are deep orange, - all the leaves dropping are different shades... So I have added a bit of lilac - I have a clematis which is flowering so beautifully - it deserved a photo - plus the odd sweetpea still to be had. Soon be firework night.
