The "Autumn Bliss" raspberries are still continuing to produce a few fruits too. Normally by this time of the year I have cut down the canes, but I keep leaving them a little longer.

The Oxalis "Burgundy Wine" is also sprouting strongly. It had died right down, with no leaves visible, but a new batch has appeared. The foliage is not frost-hardy, so this batch is doomed to have a very brief life, surely?

Even the Coreopsis "Early Sunrise", which I firmly associate with July and August, is still producing more flowers.
There are lots of little seedlings coming up in the soil where the Calendulas were. I'd like them to survive over the Winter, but I don't expect they will.

P.S. Since I wrote this I have seen how rough the weather has been in Scotland, so I suppose Winter HAS arrived in some parts of the UK.
