There are still a few hangers-on in the garden, unwilling to give in to the season, but soon their time will be at an end for another year.
The Dahlias are looking very scruffy now but until they are hit by frost they will stay as they are, giving just a little more pleasure.
And the hardy Fuschia with the Eryngium behind have flowered and flowered and show no signs of stopping.
The Sempervivum theatre is also going strong and increases every year, they are supposed to be drought-resistant, but some are looking a little sorry for themselves. I will have to give them a good sort out next spring, if they survive the winter.
The sky early this morning was tinted with lavender and pink hues which changed by the minute - you know what they say about 'red sky in the morning'. We shall have to wait and see.
