October and still in flower

Still having warm sunny days and the garden still has many flowers to offer food for the visiting bees and hoverflies (and occasional butterfly). Many of the plants in he garden have flowered for much longer this year. The passion flower was flowering until a few weeks ago, much longer than previous years

Hebe, a favourite with insect pollinators.

Red Valerian growing on the flint wall

One of the tomato plants still producing tomatoes

Lavender, particularly loved by bees.

One of several petunias that have been flowering all through the summer

Rock Rose
The nasturtium plants (self seeded from last year) are still growing and running wild.
