October in pictures

Each week I create a photo collage which sums up our week. It mainly focuses on gardening but sometimes other events are thrown into the mix. 

The photos form the main part of a dairy page on our website which also has brief notes and blog links to both of our blogs. If you are interested in visiting the October page is here. 

Here is October's photo collection that are representative of the 232 photos that I kept for October with lots more discarded.

 
If you enjoy watching videos we also have a vlog which mainly hosts Martyn's videos but I have added one or two of mine too.

Don't forget Martyn has a blog A Gardener's Weather Diary  which records our gardening antics from his point of view.

    1. I guess once we have a keen frost the colour will disappear, Deborah

  2. I really love this idea - if only I had the time! Well, at least with digital photos, it's much easier to do these types of compilations after the fact which hopefully I will one day.

    1. If only digital photography had been invented earlier we would have had a lovely record going back further, Margaret.

  3. flipping heck 232 pictures, how many did you discard? seriously they are all lovely, my ratio of pictures I retain, against those that I delete is probably similar to yours. We do have standards after all Sue!

    2. burst mode is to be recommended for not missing that one shot you really want.

    1. The modules contain hardy annuals, Mal. Ideally I would have sown them direct but they needed to go in when we couldn’t get to the plot so I hope transplanting them works.

  8. Wow! Look at all that colour - and excellent harvests despite being beset by other problems. Looks like you're back on it though with bulbs going in. Good luck transplanting your annuals, will you fleece them?

    1. Last year I covered them with enviromeah, Caro. The aim was to try and protect the seedlings from birds etc. I don’t think it would protect from frost. Last winter was mild so I’m not sure how they will fare if we have a bad winter.

  9. You do a much better job than I of getting photos of things! And your flowers are always so impressive, even more so this time of year.
