The chilly nights have brought down the first few leaves but the warm weather earlier in the moth has encouraged the late flowering plants to greater efforts and their colours are glowing among the fading foliage of the summer flowerers in the border.  The gladioli, dahlias, begonias and fuchsias are making a last brave show and the stunning blue of a hydrangea draws the eye.  These last few days of summer seem all the more poignant  as, one morning soon, we shall wake to find the first frost has ended this last flourish and we shall be taking in the corms and bulbs and cutting back the darkened foliage.
John Lea writes of his pleasure on seeing a mass visitation of the Speckled Wood butterflies of which he is so fond feeding on the minute cream flowers of the  alder buckthorns which he planted to encourage wildlife.  These shrubs do not fruit like a cherry but blossom and produce fruit progressively through the summer The tiny berries change from green to an orange red and eventually to black, if the birds let them ripen fully John was particularly pleased to see the Speckled Woods as, at the big insect count in August, he has seen only two.
We are doing our bit for wildlife by putting out a ‘bug hotel’;  I do hope the earwigs are not inviting themselves in.  I don’t suppose a sign reading ‘only beneficial insects’ would do the trick!



Our speaker at our Tuesday meeting was   Michelle from the Cherry Blossom Bakery, who showed us how to ice a Christmas cake with a holly wreath.  She also gave us some hints and tips on how to make the icing smooth and how to fill in that gap you often get at the bottom edge of the cake where it meets the cake board, all very useful ideas.  The cake looked lovely with its simple holly garland and red ribbon around the edge and was going to the staff at the East Cheshire Hospice afterwards.  She also told us her   husband makes a lot of the cakes, which is a secret he had kept hidden for 30 years, and that they only use the Be-Ro flour recipe book.  Who out of us  remembers Be- Ro flour?  I have a Be-Ro recipe book and very useful it is too!
Our outing to the centenary fair in   Harrogate at the beginning of September was very successful and an enjoyable time was had by all the ladies who went.  Apparently many of the ladies came back with lots of shopping from the fair! 
Our next outing is a mystery trip on the 17th November.  I wonder where we will be off to?
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 3rd  November at 7 pm when we will be having a quiz night.  As always, please feel free to come along and join us, new members and visitors are always welcome.
