I’ve been away on holiday, so I’m catching up on missed Friday photos by posting three today. Thanks to a long, warm summer and a remarkably mild autumn in Scotland so far, gardens continue to bloom beyond the usual time. When I came back from holiday I wondered if there would be any flowers left since it was halfway through October. I was delighted to find there was plenty still blooming, including the plants shown below. It’s turned significantly colder today and there might even be a touch of snow over the weekend, so I suspect this is the last hurrah.
