Late colour in the garden

We have yet to have had a hard frost where I live in Northern Ireland, so there's still some great colour in the garden (along with the leaves as they fall from the trees daily and litter the garden!). 

Many of the late  Summer flowers are continuing into Fall/Autumn. Some plants, of course, are looking tired each day,  and I continue to do a bit of deadheading - at least until the weather gets worse.

Here's a little summary of what has looked well in October, and is keeping providing some colour going into November...
