October?

We are already almost half way through October, and yet in the garden can still be seen....


...some bright nasturtiums......


.....a banana plant flourishing and still putting out leaves....


....a giant hibiscus putting out its first and only bud for the year - will it make it to open before the frosts come?


More in keeping with the time of year, our grape vine has gone mad this year and spread over the pergola at last and produced a few small bunches of plump grapes. Those leaves are so very beautiful!

There is another fish-themed triangular scarf on it's way - a few finishing touches to be made and then it is done.

I have a mere 12 more potatoes to be painted......there will be a large bottle of champagne chilling in my fridge when the last one is in progress...

Lovely pictures. :-) I love the vine leaves, too.

Still lots of roses in my garden, but brrrr it's cold out there this morning.....
