Hello there and welcome to this week’s #PoCoLo a friendly linky where you can link any post published in the last week. If you were here last week, it was great to see you and if you’re new here this week, then you’re very welcome. Both Morgan and I know you’ll find some great posts to read, and encourage you to pop over to some of the posts linked and take the time to leave a comment or two so that everyone benefits from some extra love.
With a weekend at home we finally got around to tackling the leaves in the garden, or rather MOH did, while I faffed about avoiding the back breaking work of picking up leaves. It’s my cunning plan every year, and it generally seems to work, if you ever find yourself in the same situation. I spent the time taking pictures of the garden - there’s more in the post I’ve linked this week, covering up the garden furniture and pizza oven, moving pots into a more sheltered position and covering our agapanthus in fleece. Which as it turned out was a good move, as as well as the rain earlier in the week we had hailstones, which was a bit of a shock, and then a heavy frost yesterday morning.
Oh, and I picked my last crop of tomatoes, some lettuce and even more bizarrely two miniature broad beans, like you do mid-November
