Where oh where are these weeks flying to.. Already it is mid October and soon Halloween will be here.. So here is just a quick update of what I have been doing.
The weather is being kind to us mid October as all of a sudden it has decided to become warmer again.. Most welcome as we get those last-minute tidy up jobs done in our garden.. ( Click the images to enlarge and read full text )
So the geraniums have been lifted and potted back up cuttings taken and I even managed to plant up 7 large tubs of Spring Bulbs.. As well as trim shrubs, and dead head some amazing blooms still in the garden giving us lots of Autumn colours.
As you can see from the above photo, the Dahlias are still in full flower and will be until the first frosts.. I keep making sure I pick them and dead head them to help encourage their flowering..
While the weather has had its ups and downs, I not only finished my second cardigan but I also began another knitting project.. I started a waistcoat.. This wool has got to be around 15 yrs old if not more.. A lady gifted it to me, as she left to live in Australia. She got the wool intending to knit it for her sons, who both emigrated out there. In fact she gave me several bags of wool, hence the dark colours.. The brown cardigan was also from this stash of gifted wool.. So the cost to make, has only been to buy the buttons.. and the cost of the pattern for this waistcoat.
What have you been filling your time with on rainy days?
Until Next time.. Enjoy Your Autumn
