Winter is coming

In what has been a very mild month all in all -- we still even have nasturtiums, half-hardy fuchsias, and busy lizzies flowering in the garden -- I've cycled about 125 miles up to yesterday, by dint of working from home a couple of afternoons a week. And today I harvested tomatoes and courgettes from the greenhouse, and the weekly handful of french beans from plants that have been lazily producing at about the same rate since July.

But it seems that some actual cold weather is on the way, and I might even be able get around to some of the seasonal garden tidy-up chores (unless we get snowed in until January again, like the other year when I had to wait for the thaw to finish sweeping leaves off the lawn).
