October has arrived and the weather is unbelievable although we know it cannot last. A most beautiful morning had me outside with the phone and the three shots here are to one side of out house to the sea, the second is the other side where the local contractor is removing shale for someone’s hardcore driveway and behind we can just see the tops of the windfarms arms turning. It’s probably not visible in the photo but is one tiny arm just disappearing at the very top right hand corner. Closer to hand I have enjoyed the entire season, Erysimum Bowles Mauve which I have always adored. This plant is in a huge container and has been fantastic. I will take it inside the greenhouse when the weather deteriorates along with Salvia patens and Viola Irish Molly. In the meantime long may this gorgeous weather last.
