trying not to panic

I'm reading all the journals of Autumn preparations - clearing leaves, planting bulbs, cutting back the borders but I'm too far away to do any of it! Of course I am having a wonderful time with my granddaughter  - 6 years old already! 

Barcelona is also enjoying some unseasonal weather - much dryer and warmer than usual for this time of year!  

We have been checking the flowers that we planted last year and there are two healthy Anemones doing well. 

These Oxalis which prefer shaded woodland are doing well on the third floor balcony! 
I wish I could bottle this sunshine and bring it home!

Oh wow Hazel, that looks so inviting and so warm too! Mind you today was a gorgeous sunny bright day and only cold now this evening. I had a couple of hours, the first in a while, in the garden today and enjoyed every minute of it! No need to panic at all, lots of time to do what needs doing and sure if you dont get it done this side of Christmas there is always the lovely days of Spring to look forward to! The garden will look well with frost on those that couldnt be cleared away......thats how I look at it !!

I think we all envy your visit to Barcelona. Enjoy the time you are getting to spend with your family. The garden can wait until the weather is good enough to go in on the soil and bulbs can be planted in to pots. Have a great time and enjoy all that heat.

Just enjoy your visit, Hazel, both family and weather. The garden will be fine!

You'll have all winter to clear everything back. Just enjoy the moment, the heat, family, and a bit of sangria.

Enjoy the sunshine and time with your family, Hazel.  I can almost feel the warmth in your photos.  The garden will be fine and, don't panic, not all of us are up to date with our gardening jobs, certainly not here!
