I have just spent a wonderful week with my daughter and “the boys” in Bristol. The boys include my son in law, two grandsons, and Finn, the dog! When I arrived and looked out of the back window, there was the most amazing splash of orange berries at the top of their garden.
Orange berried Pyracantha at the top of the garden.
The birds are enjoying all the berries.
I don’t think they’ll last very long, mine at home have nearly all gone.
I love their beautiful bird feeder.
I also like their pretty little bird box.
I noticed some nice foliage combinations.
When our grandsons were younger, any plants had to be football proof!
Salvia Hotlips is doing well by the steps, a bit of girly colour for my daughter.
But the whole garden was set alight by thousands of orange berries, just the right colour for Halloween!
My daughter did a beautiful arrangement with a small ceramic pumpkin, I wish I had photographed hers as it was better than mine! This is in my garden, my real pumpkin is a tiny one which I will hopefully enjoy eating for my lunch tomorrow!
I had intended to drive to Bristol myself, but my daughter came and collected me as I had a tiny stroke a couple of weeks ago and am not allowed to drive for a month, so frustrating! I had a scan on my brain (yes, there is one in there) and neck and everything is fine, I feel fine in myself and now that I’m home once more, I’m looking forward to getting into the garden again, weather permitting. OK, I won’t do too much, I’ll be sensible – yes, I will!
