Margaret's Garden Journal for October 2008


 
Once again the holly berries turned red in October and once again the woodpigeons stripped them bare! The dahlias in the front garden continued to look glorious until the first sharp frost on the 28th, The Bishop that was sulking last month began to flower again. I think it could have done with a little more light in September, so I may move it lm spring to a spot that has more autumn light .
