Sunshine on an Autumn Day

It may be the middle of October but in SE England many plants are still offering delightful flowers to delight the senses. I took these shots today on The Village Allotment where the summer veg is long past its best but the grapes are looking exceptionally ripe and juicy.

We’ve had some lovely days of sunshine here on the South Coast with little rain.Predictions are that winter 2010/11 could see ongoing low rainfall followed by a dry spring. Good news for drought loving plants;type=winter-forecast;sess=

Will this forecast turn out to be correct? Anything has to be better than last winter’s artic temperatures which, although good for fruit trees, did lots of damage to many tender plants. Already there are lots of big berries on many trees – will nature have the last word and deliver another freeze?

Love to know your thoughts on the weather and whether you think it will be a dry or cold winter?
