October is Here! Brrr chilly !! It's a blustery day here with leaves and conkers 
starting to fall. Some of Team Evolve are already in four layers of clothing and 
got their woolly hats on! The best way to keep out the cold is to wear a scarf andmake up a hum :) (said Winnie the Pooh) 
How nature cheers us up - already there's spring bulbs starting to shoot, despite the Tulip bulbs for next season still not being in the trays as yet. Early Daffodils have been planted and... scented Narcissi have arrived!!

Quote of the Week: 

‚ÄúOh the wind is lashing lustily and the trees are thrashing thrustily and the leaves are rustling gustily, so its rather safe to say. That it seems that it may turn out to be, feels that it will undoubtedly, it looks like a rather blustery day. today.‚Ä̬†-¬†A Rather Blustery Day - Winnie the Pooh

 

Keep Calm & Keep On Flowering! 

Yours in Flowers
