Just a few random photos from October

Our last trip to Kings Lock Tearooms for the year. They close at the end of October as we alter the clocks and open again on Good Friday, whatever the weather!

One of our many favourite places in town, The Crumblin' Cookie

I've been absent from blog land for a few weeks. No reason at all.

Some pictures which mean it must be autumn.

I've tried my best with these Cyclamen. I've planted them in JI No 3 compost with lots of added vermiculite and grit. Then top dressed with grit. 

This was from Scarecrow Day at Abbey Pumping Station.

These are our pumpkins, They are called Baby Bears. They are small and are meant to be. I hope they keep well, we have rather a lot.

The start of Sausage and Pumpkin Casserole.

Lots of Green Toms. We have decided to put them on the windowsill to turn red. They are coming along nicely.
