1. The marigolds are still flowering happily, lots of buds still!
2. The gnome is moving from underneath the blackberries for winter, closer towards the house where it is a little bit warmer.
3 & 4. Bindweed, bindweed, bindweed…
5. The climbing nasturtiums clinging to the house still have it warm enough to flourish, and they really glow in dusk!
6. Took in the ladybirds and mushrooms today.

I think today might have been my last gardening day for the year. Or no, I still have some ivy to move from pots to the ground, but other than that I think I’m done. I will be decorating it for christmas of course but yeah, I think this is it. Feels a bit sad, but I’ve been a bit disenchanted with everything this year because many things worked out badly, much because of the weather, so I’m really just looking forward to a new start in spring. Put in some grape hyacinth and daffodil bulbs today so I’m hoping they’ll make an appearance; both are favs of mine.

Strawberries, why are you still flowering?! They’re so weird; hardly any fruits, just loads of flowers… I’m getting new ones. >:/ Or could it be too little sun?

Check out this Laetiporus! I was sadly out of the country when it was in its best edible phase, but if we get some next year I’m giving it a shot! Wish I had known they were edible when we had an enormous one on the other cherry tree last year.

Garden crimes!!!

1. SOMEONE has sabotaged the orpine… It almost looks like someone has been lying there chewing on something. Perhaps a…
2 … BONE?
3. Returning to the scene of the crime.
4. SOMEONE has chewed on the best little spade, making it very uncomfortable to dig with.
5. Perhaps someone who is now chewing on a stick… Hmmm…

Yes, and it’s an earring! :)
