28th September. The end of a week of glorious sunny days and cool nights. The work in the garden is moving a pace as we get ready for winter and spring flowers. G has cleared the top boarders and now has started to plant out the wallflowers.  Deep Red near the house and White in the bird bath bed. F is busy tidying the Nut Walk and S has started on the changes to the kitchen garden, me, my job is ordering bulbs and other plants and spending money.  The Black Hamburg vine has cropped well again this year and a hand full of ripe grapes to munch on always makes a visit to the kitchen garden worth a visit at this time of the year.

30th September. The last day of the month, full of sun and warm to sit out. The Michaelmas Daisy in the kitchen garden is the best I have seen, I like these old cottage plants and of course the names often give a clue to the time of the year or religious festival.
