Once the mist has cleared I wander out into the garden. Everything is looking rather dishevelled and although it is still a pleasant temperature in the daytime cool temperatures at night mean that the growing season is over for my vegetables. It's been a mixed year, great for traditional English veg such as carrots, leeks and parsnips that have enjoyed a cool, wet August but a miserable failure for some other crops that needed a great deal more warmth and sunshine.
On the bright side there is still plenty of colour to bring into the house.
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
