Entering into winter

Soon autumn is over and we will enter into our second winter here in Corfu. It has been a really good autumn for us so far, a lot more rain than last year, but our repaired roof has kept it out so we have been able to keep dry and cosy. The rain has made the garden green and pleasant with a lot of flowering Colchicum and Crocus, creating colourful patches amongst the greenery. In early November I found a pair of Autumn Lady´s Tresses, Spiranthes spiralis, in the garden and marked the spot so they will not be uprooted by mistake. Hopefully they will set seed and multiply.
