When I got up this morning at about 6am and stepped into the garden, it had a definite autumnal air about it. The sun had just risen over the trees but it was what I call a misty, moisty morning with the sun illuminating all the spider’s webs in the garden, they were beautiful, but I always think of them belonging to September not August.
So beautiful and so perfect, covered in droplets.
Someone decided that an allium seedhead would make the perfect home.
There were lots in the woodland.
So perfect unltil something comes crashing through.
Rosa glauca was so pretty when it was in flower, now it is gorgeous covered in rosehips.
Arum italicum marmoratum shouts from the undergrowth, you can’t miss the red berries.
The winds that we had lashing the trees during our thunder storm has brought down loads of conkers or the fruit of our horse chestnut trees.
The woodland floor is covered with horse chestnut leaves,making it look very autumnal.
Little cyclamen hederifolium have started popping up everywhere in the woodland.
We have white ones, magenta and…..
…pink ones. Hopefully the ants are still working hard moving the seed about and in a few weeks time there will be a lot more to show you.
I think you will agree with me that parts of my garden are saying goodbye to summer and hello to autumn, is your garden the same or are you still in summer mode?
