A light frost and early mist turned into a lovely bright but crisp autumnal day, mostly spent doing more digging and getting bulbs in, but this morning I went to the Scampston Hall Autumn Plant Fair. being so close (less than five miles) it's easy to pop over there. The sale was a bit sparse, but there were some nice things on offer and I acquired some autumn gentians in the hope that I'll be able to grow them here. Afterwards I took a quick turn round the Scampston walled garden, where the plantings are taking on lovely autumn colours.
