“I’M SO GLAD I LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE THERE ARE OCTOBERS” L. M. Montgomery, October 24, 2020October 24, 2020 | gaiainaction It was a mellow October afternoon and I decided to plant out some spinach seedlings which I still had growing in a pot. I had a wander through the rest of the garden and saw that there is actually quite a lot of winter produce doing well, and it pleased me. I also saw how beautiful everything looked, the colours, the autumn shades which are wonderful. An October sun illuminated everything. It was a perfect afternoon.

I will grow these beautiful Rudbeckia againThe Mediterranean oak tree in full colourAnother oregano plantItalian flat-leaved parsleyA type of catnipLemon thymeOur lavender bushesA new hydrangeaSome of our produceThere is so much to find growing even at this time of the year, and it will do so during the winter months thanks to the gulfstream which gives us a very mild climate. Pleasure can be gained both from tending to the garden and growing some things, or from just having a wander around. Enjoy a lovely weekend everyone, and I would love to hear about your autumn garden too.
