I love the month of October in the garden when there is a sudden surge of spring growth and new life bursts forth. At the moment our garden is filled with the divine scent of orange and grapefruit blossom, which is especially strong at night time. Most of the seedlings I raised in the greenhouse have been transplanted into the vegetable beds. The bean plants are climbing up their strings, and the strawberry plants are covered in flowers.
Poppies are blooming in the front garden.
The foxgloves I planted last year are producing tall spires of pretty cream bell-shaped flowers.
Finn loves to doze on the sunny bench seat outside the studio.
I planted pots of mustard and cress to cut for use in sandwiches and salads.
These are the October pages from my garden journal.
The card lifts up to reveal the cupcake recipe beneath.
I hope, wherever you are, there is something blooming in your garden.
