A Mild October

19°C in the garden at the end of October and it’s almost November 🤔🌡️

The unusually mild weather is a great opportunity to extend the growing season a little bit but its really problematic in terms of the balance of our climate in the long term 😔

It has been an extremely warm year this year and I fear this will mean that when winter comes it will be a huge shock to the system in a few weeks time! From summer to winter in an instant ❄️ The only evidence of autumn here is the fall of the leaves, otherwise it almost feels like August!
