... it's a time to celebrate the harvest, to carve Jack-o-Lanterns for Halloween and to enjoy the fireworks on Bonfire Night.
We recently visited the Autumn Harvest event at RHS Wisley.
There was apple tasting and freshly pressed apple juice to try.
Lots of prettily displayed seeds.
In the gardens the grasses were the star performers.
Miscanthus sinensis "Ferner Osten"
Inside the glasshouse was a display of Nerines.
The Vyne also celebrated Halloween, someone had had a lot of fun decorating the rooms on the ground floor!
Our village actually celebrated Bonfire Night early this year, on 25th October! At the time it seemed strange to be having fireworks before Halloween.
It was a fabulous display and the clear mild night was perfect.
In fact I'm rather glad it was held early as 5th November was the coldest night so far this autumn and this morning I woke up to a garden that had been visited by Jack Frost.
