Even though it is raining, the light is really kind somehow and the special autumn colours are showing up well. I hope you agree!

I didn’t grow these myself but the colours go well with the rest of this!

Raindrops fell on everything out there but there is a sign of hope in the sky!

Pity the raindrops fell on all my washing as well.

It was really warm this morning after 11, even gardened in my T shirt, got to be quite balmy for me to be that barmy! No rain here. Lots of colour in your garden.

A light shower I don't mind......we have had a couple of summer days here......I agree,Chris,the colours are very special at this time of year.......your garden is looking so inviting,but sadly,I'm not near to see it!!

You've some great colour there. The thought occurred to me today, that in a very short time now we will be raking up all those leaves! Still...keeps one fit. :)

Sometimes the wind gets in just the right direction to 'sweep' up the leaves for me.........I live in hope!
It depends how long I can put up with them! I think the rake is already leaning against the tree though, waiting!!!

What a wonderful show of colour,Chris..it must light up your days ,looking out on this..I do like the 3rd from the bottom..Sedum? it looks so dainty..and the two white Roses ,making a statement are lovely..A gorgeous vase of Flowers too..The washing will dry at some point,make the most of your lovely garden instead :o) xx

Mellow is the word isn't it - lovely soft warm colours.
Oh don't talk about leaf sweeping -we have loads already but the trees don't look any barer which makes sweeping up a bit disheartening as they'll all be back tomorrow...

Yes, a warm glow to the pictures. Some, but not all, of my pictures at Beth Chatto's last week had that nice autumn glow/colour and others just looked dull!!

I love the Autumn shades too Chris, what I dislike are the garden spider webs strung across everything! We have a clear blue sky today with a heavy dew on the grass.

What a lovely blog Wildrose. The autumn colour looks great.

9 Oct, 2015

 

It looks beautiful, Chris. Loads of leaves on the trees here, and still comparatively green, but more and more on the ground! 😐

I'm very fond of these autumn colours Chris they are over all to soon we already have leaves piling up under the big Acer King . I like your little leaf selection next to your title where do you get them from ? ,I'm not hugely clever with trying out different things on the computer !

Thanks to everyone for such encouraging comments. Our garden has had to take second place this year for a number of reasons and it is good to be able to see this rich colour out there, in spite of its neglect!

Amy, I am using an Apple I- pad and there are lots of little pictures to choose to add on to text! Lots of fun!

I wondered what they were - all I can see on my laptop is a row of little squares.

Thanks Chris , I don't have apple or I-pad only Microsoft 7 computer , I can use unicode character but it doesn't have such nice ones as yours they are mostly just different shaped letters .. :o( ☺

Wild rose your garden is looking so colourful and pretty, still quite green here, I love all those emoji, I can use them on my Nexus tablet, but cannot see how to add them on my Apple Mac, they are there but won't move, any ideas?

Lovely colours in the low light Wildrose shame about the rain but it didn't spoil the display, thank you for sharing :o)

Lovely autumn colours.

10 Oct, 2015

 

Lovely show of colour Wildrose, one cannot help but love the autumn despite all the falling leaves...

10 Oct, 2015

 

Even more leaves lying all over the place now so I guess it is time to put the rake to use!

Dotty, when I type anything on here, next to my space bar, on the left of it, is a little smiley face. If I click on it I get a selection of little images to use.

πŸ’ good luck!

What glorious colours Wildrose. I often wish that the colours on the trees in autumn could be there in summer when we have the summer flowers. I'm never satisfied. πŸ˜ƒ

11 Oct, 2015

 

Now, you see, that's what happens when I use that little button.

11 Oct, 2015

 

What have I started?!!!

11 Oct, 2015

 

Lol!πŸ˜‚

11 Oct, 2015

 

How come I can see those little smileys but not the ones on Wildrose's comments?

11 Oct, 2015

 

Gremlins Stera.

12 Oct, 2015

 

See what I mean Amy? I get great, funny little pics, but they appear on the screen when I click 'add comment' as blank squares. it's Gremlins I tell you...

Its not fair is it Waddy , I'm doing something weird as well , I choose the picture but then the one I choose comes out as something different like an explanation mark . double Gremlins Grrrr ....

12 Oct, 2015

 

This is all very strange! It did make me chuckle though! I shall have to refrain from using these little extras ........ but not just yet!

Just catching up again Chris ! Rick's not good at the moment ! I love all the colours in your garden ! If the washing dries, then you have to spend time ironing it ! Hahaa!

12 Oct, 2015

Chris will you stop it ,its driving us mad !! I've found out I can put them on emails so why not on here ??????

Sorry to hear that Rose fingers crossed he will soon feel better !

12 Oct, 2015

 

Ah yes, Amy, but Emails are a whole different thing, for example where are all those which never get delivered? Somebody must have them.

I don't mind the washing so much Rose, it's the ironing I hate. Still, it's a chance to catch up on all those things I've recorded which my OH doesn't like. Hope Rick is feeling his old self again soon.

Its those Gremlins again Waddy they are sitting in a cupboard somewhere laughing their heads off at our emails !!!

13 Oct, 2015

 

Sorry, couldn't resist!

🐞 🐝 🐌 Technology eh?! πŸ“  πŸ’» πŸ“Ÿ I WILL stop now because I am beginning to annoy myself!!!
😑

13 Oct, 2015

 

This is what my garden is filling up with : πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸ‚. As long as these keep away : 🐌🐌🐌🐌 (they won't πŸ˜•)
But I still have quite a lot of these : 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝 and these : 🐸🐸🐸 !

I love my little pictures, but it took me a while to find them. On the laptop, a lot of them just produce squares - very disappointing.

14 Oct, 2015

 

Thank you Amy and Waddy ! He has just finished seven and a half weeks radiotherapy for prostate cancer !

14 Oct, 2015

 

Thanks for your lovely letter Chris and why can't I find these pictures !

14 Oct, 2015

 

Mel, hurrah, you have found them too! It will encourage the others to keep on looking!!
