I have been busy - too busy I'm almost ashamed to say to find time to document the changing seasons in Pablo's garden.

I have already closed the summer house down for the year and am currently ensuring the cushions are well and truly dry before packing them away until next spring. There has been no opportunity to treat the woodwork so fingers crossed the winter isn't too severe.
It's amazing just how much colour there is still to be seen in the borders. This forest pansy is a wonderful example although, to be fair, the leaves are this colour from late spring until they begin to fall in early autumn. They are lovely to use in flower arrangements despite not taking kindly to being picked. Even so, it's worth trying to introduce such a fabulous colour inside the house.
Norman, All Seasons Arborist, has already performed his annual magic and trimmed back the ivy on the garage and generally kept the trees in check, including the holly that is already bearing berries in anticipation of the festive season.
