It really looks like autumn in the garden now. The Rowan has lost all its leaves and there are just a few hanging on to the Katsura, still leaving that heavenly scent of cinder toffee every time I walk past. The Forsythia next to the greenhouse has turned deep red and the Virginia Creeper growing over the compost heaps is colouring nicely. The Japanese Maple ‘Bloodgood’, in a pot next to the summerhouse, is glowing scarlet. It’s 24 years old now! The grass in the orchard is covered with the last of the small red apples, I’m leaving them for the blackbirds.
The marbled leaves of Cyclamen hederifolium are making nice mounds in all kinds of places, and many primroses are flowering. It seems to be the purple ones that like to flower in autumn in this garden – they are very welcome.

It is lovely, although quite unkempt - a work in progress! I try to walk round it every day.
