Heading off to the veg patch to dig parsnips, carrots and Jerusalem artichokes for a tray of roast roots, I was stopped in my tracks by this unusual sight. Now I know strange things happen in the garden from time to time but even I find a pear tree in full bloom at the beginning of November a little unexpected. It’s not just a couple of clusters either, the whole tree is really going for it. It dumped all its leaves during the drought here in August so perhaps it thinks it’s had winter and we’re back to spring again (if only!)?
Despite some wet and windy weather this week, there is still plenty of colour in the garden with many of the annuals I planted as companion plants or insect beacons still doing their bit. Oh yes, and in the final photo – something else that thinks it’s spring.
Meanwhile, time to get back to those yummy, starchy, comforting, ‘it’s very-definitely-autumn’ veg! 🙂
