There's no doubting that we're heading in to winter now, the leaves on the trees aren't just changing colour, they're falling to the ground too, the clocks have gone back and the darker evenings are with us once again. It's not all doom and gloom though as this month's round up of photos which haven't yet appeared on the blog show, there's still lots of interest in the garden.
I've seen many more butterflies and bees this year than I usually do which I'm so pleased about. I know the sedum has attracted lots of different types of butterfly to my garden.
Harvesting of the potatoes I grew in containers continued into October, it's been a good year for spuds. I don't think you can beat Anya, a waxy potato with a delicious flavour. The yields have been better this year than in previous years.
A few more photos from our trip to Harlow Carr earlier this month.
More photos from Manor Park Walled Garden. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here.

It's a miserable day here, the rain's falling and it's dark and gloomy. I'm already wishing for Spring to arrive. I've got a long wait.
