I can't believe it's nearly a month since I put up a journal, though I have been reading everyone else's, usually late at night.  Other priorities have taken over from gardening recently, so I'm hoping to get out for a day or two later this week to catch up with cutting back, tying in, dividing, leaf collecting, mulching, tulip planting etc, etc.  I bought loads of tulips this year, some for adding to those in the ground and others for pots, and now is the time to get them planted.

Meanwhile the garden is carrying on with the season and I took a few photos last weekend when the sun came out.  I'm pleased with how well winter jasmine on the north facing wall is coming on since its major hack back last year.  Also making progress, though very slowly, is the witch hazel planted a few years ago in the front garden and this year Mahonia x media 'Charity' is looking better than ever.  

Let's hope we get some more nice days before winter takes hold.

Beautiful photos, Joan. Lovely blue sky really sets off the Mahonia.

We're having lovely sunny days recently. But the nights are certainly getting colder and colder quite quickly. Great photos, Joan.

Joan, three lovely plants. Mahonias are brilliant at this time of year with their beautiful scented flowers. However, witch hazels are my favourite with their fantastic autumn colour iand their spidery flower in February. Beautiful sunny day here today, but cold tonight.

Great photos. Yes life gets in the way sometimes but the garden is still waiting.
