6th November

"In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought
and care and toil.  And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as
from August to November."
-   Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden

So its November 6th.  I've done a bit of checking, and November 6th doesn't seem particularly of note about anything.  It is a the date of various US Presidents being elected, it is the birthday of Nigel Havers and also the date that Tommy Lawton died, but really this is not a great date of note (I am sure it is really, I have used a very selective list and I have deliberately not gone into huge research - the point is, November 6th in general, not that special in my world).

So why do a post about it?

Because today was lovely.

The sun shone.

We have had rain recently so the garden is wet and the pond is refilling.

 There are still many flowers to be seen as it is has been so mild so far this year.

 Seed heads are forming alongside the flowers.

 Its just been rather nice and I thought it worth saying.

  2. Fab photos. I love your rose. Mine are having a last final flurry. And even the blackspot (curse of living in pure high air I hope!) has not been too bad this year.

  3. Thanks both - yes it is a nice rose, but it does go manky easily unfortunately - but I agree, not a bad year for black spot thankfully
