Is winter really on its way?
One morning this week it was very chilly when we got up for the day. We began to think we had even had a frost. Apparently not but it was very close.
We were concerned that our tomato plants may have suffered. We have a lot of green tomatoes and we are hoping for just enough warmth and sunshine to harvest them before winter really sets in.
I went for a wander in the garden this morning and took some photos of flowers that are still on show for us.
The long hot summer has taken its toll on some of the plants but with a return of rain over the last week the plants are managing to hold on for a little while yet.
All too soon, the frosts will be here and these blooms will fade away until we start all over again next spring.
At least these images can provide a record to remind us that they will be back.
