Dreich day

Hello Today is dull and dreich and dismal. I got caught in the rain this morning and the wind is whipping into every corner and crevice so I thought I'd show you some snaps of my garden that I took last week and never got round to posting...

I think one of my apple trees is a little confused. It is hedging its bets and flowering as well as friuting. It's probably an omen of something or other.

We have a party every year to harvest our apples and to give away the vast majority that we can't use. It is only 2 1/2 weeks away and what with one thing and another I haven't even begun to think about it! Hmm job for next week - more list making...

Most of my roses have either rotted in the bud or been bashed to death by the wind so I snapped this one then snipped it for inside where I have half a chance of enjoying it.

It's amazing how much colour you can still find if you look carefully.

I do like leeks even though mine are always a bit feeble, not helped this year by being neatly snipped off at ground level by some pesky voles when they were just getting going. A rather beautiful ginger cat has started to frequent our garden sometimes and since then we have had less problems with voles...

Off to try and finish my Christmas shopping now. No really!
