In these dull November days, here is a little ditty to cheer you up, author unknown:
I wish I was a glow worm
A glow worm's never glum
'Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!
We are still trying to finish sorting out our garden ready for winter. The nights may be drawing in and we occasionally have the heating on for the odd 1/2 hour just to take the chill off the rest of the house, but the temperature outside is still warm enough to be fooling summer plants into flowering.
I have given up for now, pruning my rose bushes in preparation against the winter wind and rain as they, along with campanula, chrysanthemums and autumn raspberries, just keep flowering.
