Autumn is here
Having been away for a week on holiday I’ve returned to find kilos of ripe tomatoes waiting for me and all of my pears laying on the ground rotting! The quince tree has developed ‘back problems’ as the weight of the fruit is bending all the branches and the windy weather today just isn’t helping.
The flower garden is beginning to look a little tired with many of the flowers past their best. It’s great to have a scout around and find a few ‘treasures’ have self seeded and popped up where least expected. Even if I don’t want them in that particular place I have to admire their tenacity in growing in a difficult season.
The acers are all starting to show a hint of autumn colour and I always look forward to their vibrant display. Their are also three Euonymus Alatus and they are turning a more glorious crimson colour day by day, the autumn colours seem to defy the cooler weather with their range of fiery tints in orange, yellow, magenta and reds. So bold and defiant despite the coming of winter with its bleak beauty.
