Funny to see Heather's post as I was about to make comment about how the Dahlias are at their best now in my garden. Heading towards the middle of October they took their time. Very windy here today.

Amazing the amount of colour still in the garden.  Probably one of the best value plants is Cuphea; starts flowering early and still going very strong. Wonderful Autumn day here hope same with you.

Cannas , lots of them.

There is still some nice colour in the hot area with Canna and Dahlias. The yellow leaved Cortaderia has lovely plumes I love to watch them develop.

Snakes Alive

Well there I was sitting on top of my current compost heap, as you do,  removing any small sticks that have not broken down and admiring all the red worms wriggling around. I enjoy doing this and no doubt all I have read over the years about making ones own compost has proved to be so true.  So I was a happy camper until I glanced down and saw a small snake looking at me.  Never have I moved so fast and from a safe distance surveyed the scene. No movement from snake and suddenly it began to look somewhat familiar !!! So ever so bravely I reached out and picked it up  ,yes I did.  Now I am sorry not to have a horrific story of bites and anti venom but the truth is it was a little wooden snake I had bought years ago and had on a stone by the pond. No idea how it got to the compost.  But  come on now don’t be too hard on me about the anti climax it does look scary?????

Gruesome Grass.
