Indian summer has come to an end. The nights are cold and even though we haven’t had a hard frost yet, I’ve brought in the Camellias to over winter. I also dug up the Papyrus ‘King Tut’ that I have been growing this year in the garden. In the pots they seem huge. I’ll keep them well watered and hope they make it through the winter.

Camellias seem to like this room with lots of light that I keep unheated during the winter.

In the garden this Papyrus didn't seem so big, but it's almost touching the ceiling of my bedroom where I hope it survives the winter.
