The start of November saw a few really bright sunny days, so we took the opportunity to start work on chopping down the herbaceous border in preparation for winter. With new tools and everyone on each of the days taking part in this activity, light work was made of what is usually a massive job each autumn. With the border chopped, we were fortunate to have a volunteer assist with weeding the border and with a final rake and tidy, all the chopped stems and dead flowers were taken to the bonfire. Meantime, everyone had worked so hard that we wear able to take advantage of the unseasonal warmth and toast marshmallows around the fire pit, and admire our work as well as the rest oft he garden, as leaves start to fall and it becomes dormant for the winter months ahead.
