Plant of the Month
The Autumn Garden
It may be raining and miserable today but nothing can diminish the rich colours now developing in my garden. What would I do without Sedum? I have several varieties from old favourite rich pink Autumn Joy to deep red Purple Emperor, all so tough and reliable. There are abundant berries and crab apples to feed the garden birds and insects through Winter and the fleeting delight of red and yellow leaves everywhere to enjoy.
The Concorde pears are enormous this year weighing up to one and a quarter pounds each! Every year this tree looks as though it's failing yet every year it bounces back despite serious canker to produce a perfect crop of healthy fruit.

Penarth Pier in Moonlight
My large oil canvas is finally finished. It was perfect therapy for self-isolation and gave me a wonderful focus during this very difficult period. I already have prints and cards in the shop and have ordered a full size canvas print too as the original will not be dry enough to bring in for several months yet. I am back in the shop now every Monday morning and very much enjoying catching up with local news - dare I say gossip?
We're hoping the Penarth Fiver Fest will help to boost trade in Penarth. Our customers have been incredibly supportive and we, the Penarth Traders, thought it would be a a nice idea to promote some good offers to say thank you and cheer us all up a bit. All participating shops will have posters and details of offers in their windows so there will be a lot of choice. All of us at Artisans Corner are joining in. With Christmas not too far away, we hope this will help.
