October brings a richness of colour to the garden with displays of autumn foliage.

The autumn colours are at their best this month.

Make the most of them as they pass very quickly.

The night frosts and clear sunny days bring out the intensity of the colours.

Fruits and berries are an added attraction, not only to us but to the birds as well. There is still time to plant winterflowering plants, such as pansies, Violas and wall flowers.

Don’t forget to plant your spring flowering bulbs now until the end of November.

At the September meeting John Robinson, gave an interesting talk and slide show on 60 years of wildlife photography.

John started his hobby while he was in the Army in Germany.

It was a light heated talk on the adventures he had to get these impressive photos.

The evening was a great success with everyone enjoying the talk.

It was also the clubs Autumn Show.

The show winners were Austin Fletcher, Bob Marriott and Suzanne France.

Best Exhibit Austin Fletcher, many thanks to Marion for judging the show.
