I have always loved Autumn - the crispness in the air, the smell of woodsmoke, the settling down to sleep before the re-awakening in Spring, and the glorious warmth of the colours.
So I thought I'd graciously share some of the red around in my garden this October, so that you can enjoy it too:)
The berries on the hollies are spectacular.
The berberis is its usual mass of red and greenness.
The buds on the skimmia look lovely
I don’t know the name of this small tree! But it’s lovelyJ
The peony leaves have turned a lovely red.
Probably my final strawberry of the yearL
The rub chard just glows!
The slugs and snails also enjoy the red cabbage!
The apples on my neighbour's tree still hang like Christmas decorations.
The acer palmatum is still beautiful.
How is autumn cold and boring? How????
