When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Acer palmatum

The flooding wasn't too bad and it's been dry since, but it's only got above freezing in the sunshine. How about you? @pelly

Only some overnight rain a couple of times this last week, which I don't mind, but the last couple of days have been very cold. My garden is really quite sheltered so the frosts haven't done any damage yet. I still have a few summer plants flowering👌👌

How lovely! It's definitely winter here. All the leaves have gone, though I still have some roses in flower 🌺 @pelly

#treetuesday This is all the same tree. The north side knows it is autumn, the south side thinks it's still summer! 🍁🌿🍁🌿🍁
