Another relatively dry month which ended with sharp frosts bringing to an end the Summer Flowers and Autumn foliage.
With thanks to Steve at The Glebe House Garden Blog for hosting this Meme.
October arrived a bit meh, full of wind, some rain and ended with a cold snap.
We had a total of 23.4 mm of rain throughout the month. that’s our 3rd driest month over the last two years. I did end up watering some containers and some veg as it was looking a bit parched.
Above average temperatures, very little rainfall and light winds where the notable hallmarks of October in the garden, temperatures did not dip below 5°C for the month and rainfall totalled 27.9mm of rain whereas October 2015 totaled 64.4mm.
A very dry month was had.
