News for November

Late Roses, Conkers and Fir cones…

As we say a reluctant farewell to the last roses and dahlias in the garden the conkers and the fircones drop from the trees and remind us of the constant cycle of beauty, death and renewal in our world.  Our concern about the expected severity of the coming Winter weather may be tempered by looking ahead to the possibilities of the colours and perfumes of the Spring flowers.  Bulbs and Wallflowers planted this month will thrive in the freezing ground as part of their necessary development and reward us with their bounty in the new year.
