The temperatures this week have dropped dramatically as the autumn breeze brings an icy chill. Although our weather station still records temperatures in the low twenties during the day, step away from the shelter of the terrace then shorts and sleeveless tops are quicky replaced for warmer clothes. Night temperatures have also plummeted as low as 3C in the valley but fortunately on the cliffs we are still enjoying temperatures of 8C degrees plus. (according to my min max themometer). As I write this I can hear the OH aka Garden Gnome filling the wheelbarrow with logs for our log fires. Next week the forecast is wet and windy so a good time to fill the house with warmth and cheer. Beside the warmth there is nothing more comforting than sipping a hot drink while watching the flames curl round the logs until the hearth is a glowing red mass. Which reminds me – it must be almost time to buy some chestnuts to roast on the fire.
Okay, I digress. With the passing of summer to autumn we still have plenty of flowers to enjoy.

Unfortunately, after taking lots of photos of all my fruit and veg, I missed the deadline for Six on Saturday last week so I thought I’d get up early today to make sure I met the deadline.
