🎃🍃 Happy October Everyone! 🍁🍂🍂
Here the feeling of fall is in full swing, chilly crisp mornings and the trees are turning golden. Its getting darker earlier too.
I have to say I was a bit down when the flowers outside started to die off. The terrace lost all the lovely colours that I loved to sit outside with over summer. But not to despair, there are things I can do to make sure we have some colours still and later in spring.
I got some heather to plant in the pots and it really revived the area with the colors of white, deep purples and crimson. It really adds a lot. Plus they are winter hardy and should grow back.
Another plan is get bulbs and plant them now, so there are flowers and a burst of colour
for spring. The usual flower that comes to mind are tulips but there are many spring bulbs to choice from , my favourites are the Irises. So now is the time to get them planted.

I can’t wait to see them bloom in the spring.
