Season of mist
The first frost of the winter hit hard last night but gave us a glorious start to the day. The autumn colours stood out sharply and the clear blue (and very cold) sky was a stunning backdrop to the autumnal trees. Couldn't resist a couple of atmospheric pictures of the garden! Even the moon was still on display.
The long border, early morning
Andy and Andy and 9000 tulip bulbs!
And then onto the serious business of the day. 9,000 bulbs to be planted in preparation for the spring. We have chosen some stunning purple and white tulips which will (hopefully) emerge in great swathes of colour, threading through the long border. Andy and Andy started early this morning and are still going strong, planting away!
