This picture is from a few weeks ago. All the coloured leaves are gone now but it was a lovely, mild, sunny day here in Islington. I’ve spent the day in the garden. The big job was to spread the contents of the year-before-last compost bin. That’s done, so the past year’s bin now matures until this time next year and we use the vacated one. The hard job done and a tray of tea and fabulous chocolate cake passed out by Haremi enjoyed, I continued to potter and snip until the sun went behind the house and it began to get cool. All the major, autumn jobs are now done and the snowdrops are showing green shoots. Despite the severe storms it’s been very mild so far.
