October.....getting a bit chilly....

Well after being away on a break for a few weeks it's really noticeable now that the weather is slowly turning , getting a little chilly in the evenings when the sun goes down.
Still we are determind not to light the cental heating just yet!

All the leaves are turning colour and it really is so beautiful!

Still a busy time in the garden and we are a little behind this year....
With the possibilty of a frost next week we have been digging up all the susceptable tubers like the Gladioli and the Cannas.

The Cannas have grown so much this year that we had to split them before placing them to dry pre storage!It's hard to believe that 3 years ago we started off with a gift from a neighbour of just 4 small now there must be 20 or more 'clumps' of tubers!
Great for next year!!!

We also planted out our garlic and onion sets.
With the garlic we are experimenting with 4 different types...
Some from Turkey, Malta and 2 types from Bulgaria an early and a late variety.
So we will see......

It's time also to clear up in the garden..but this will take us well into much tidying up to do....though some of the flowers are still in full bloom.
Ah well at least it will keep us warm!!!
