extremely mild, and it's my first time witnessing my Phlomis flowering in November, and Lavatera. 

And I'm still picking blueberries.

Oh that’s an omen for a horrific winter !

It has been very mild all this week. It is amazing that you are still picking blueberries and the shrub does turn a fantastic colour.

Mary, I think the next picking session will be their last for this year. They have rewarded me very well this year, thanks to their new location.

It's turned cold here today. The other day I noticed a Delphinium has a bud, wonder how it'll get on?

From sunny Barcelona it is much warmer than usual here too. Also less rain! Climate change ????

Beautiful colours! Maybe the later the winter lands, the shorter it will be?

Gorgeous day today too and not a bit cold until the sun went down this evening. Ive lots of different flowers still going too, Geums havent stopped since about April, Inula is starting again, Astrantia also!!  And today I cut down my Dahlia, some of which were still flowering, do them during the week.  I even have my Cosmos still in flower and still deadheading!! I did read that our Weather might be a bit colder than in recent years, lets just hope its not like 2010/11
