I love it when we get one of those fabulous warm autumn afternoons… I think this is going to be a cracking year for autumn colour and the sunshine this afternoon has made the seeds and leaves in the garden perfect for taking some snaps…
- Seed heads of the Agapanthus in greens and purples
- Big bold black seeds bursting from the pods on the Tree Peony
- The weird fan shaped leaves on the Ginkgo against the faded blue sky
- Nature can really do colour! Bright orange seeds erupting from bright pink (and somewhat strange and phallic) pods on the Magnolia
- Statuesque bracts(?) left after the flowers of the Acanthus have faded
- The last Hollyhock 8 foot up!
- Waxy yellow Japonica-Quinces fallen from the bush – don’t they look amazing – but what to do with them?!
- The Snakebark Maple showing classic autumn colour in the low afternoon sunlight
HAPPY DAYS :)
