It's been a very unusual, but lovely, late summer going into autumn with dry spells, warm days, clear skies and cool nights giving us late flowers and fabulous foliage colour. Dahlias still blooming well and roses having yet another strong flush. Rudbeckias, choreopsis, Michelmas daisies, chelone, hardy gernaiums, sedums, persicaria and Japanese anemones still going strong.
We've had some rain this afternoon but it's set to stay dry and warm for the next week again. Good - I still have bulbs to plant and perennials to move around.
Normally by now we've already had heavy rains and deep frosts gales. I can cope with this kind of autumn.
