A short late-afternoon, my-but-it-is-getting-dark-quickly-now tour of the Garden Shop at Petersham Nurseries. House plants with homes all over the world in one glasshouse, with golden autumn leaf, pumpkins and twinkly lights. Cacti and Succulent will be moving in here from Glasshouse Two as the nights become more chill. Seriously, we are quite serious about houseplants.

And lastly, for your delight and delectation, well mine at least, some pictures taken whilst waiting in vain on Ham Common to see any fireworks. Just the one would have been nice. Some sparklers being waved about on the beach at Teddington Lock and that was my lot! Still, I hadn’t tried night photography for a while. All images hand held, as you might have realised!
