October 15

Its one of those mid October days where summer lingers.  It’s warm out, foggy and  damp, and the sun is trying to break through.  We have only had a light frost so there is much that is still blooming in the garden.  Not for long though.

From a distance, the garden looks like this  – getting a bit tired
