The beautiful trees show us that Autumn is well underway.
The colour in the leaves is caused by the chlorophyll breaking down revealing the other pigments.
My bulbs have a life of their own and are sprouting.
Outside the spring bulbs have grown leaves.
I have made a list of things to do.
Tidy up the plant pots.
I also use this time for research.
I hope to visit another house in London owned by William Morris.
I have been given two great books on famous garden designers.
This will keep me busy when the weather is too cold to work outside.
We all need a rest from the physical side of gardening.
If you like to make list why not create projects for yourself.
It may help during the long nights ahead.
