This is how half of my November garden looks - covered in leaves and the main colour coming from berries, maybe with some early spring flowers peeping through - normal for this time of year.
But a lot of the garden doesn't seem to know that summer is over - the recent warm weather has totally confused things.
Marigolds, sweet peas, rudbeckias, welsh poppies, kaffir lilies, fuchsias, antirrhinums.... these and more still flowering. I even have alpine strawberries ripening and buds on hollyhocks and oriental poppies.
This week the temperature is set to drop.... so it could be the end of summer.
