October Colours

Even in mid-October there are some great colours on show in the garden.  The Dahlia’s are still producing dozens of blooms with no signs of slowing down.  And in the greenhouse there’s a few tomatoes, peppers and chillies to ripen.  Hopefully the frosts will stay away to let this continue for another few weeks yet.  The array of colours really does lift the mood, even on the dullest of Autumn days!

Update 17th Oct – spoke to soon the first Autumn frost hit this morning!  The curse of the commentator, should have kept my mouth shut!!

  1. Like you we are keeping our fingers crossed that the predicted frosts don’t materialise just yet!

  2. Your dahlias have put on such a good show this year. I think I’m going to grow more next year.

    • Thanks Jo, I’ve learnt a lot in my first year growing them and will definitely grow more next year. Spoke to soon about the frosts though, got our first frost this morning, not sure if the Dahlias will survive another one. Such a shame as they are a riot of colour at the moment and have been for 4 months now.

  3. All the colours of your dahlias are just gorgeous!

  4. Wonderful selection! I reckon that there’ll be frost here during the week.
