Autumn splendour....

As autumn starts to kick in with leaves starting to fall from many of our trees I thought a quick posting on autumn colour in the garden might cheer everyone up.... especially seeing that it just doesn't feel as if we've even had a summer!!
The recent deluge that we had last week has almost kickstarted the garden again with all sorts of buds appearing and many new shoots apparent on the roses in particular. The garden at this time of year is full of lots of warm firey colours and for anyone reading this who finds their garden lacking in flowers at this time of year - this might give you a few hints as to what to add into yours in time for next year.
I've been out this evening in beautiful warm sunshine cutting our grass which is always a pleasure especially when the weather is like this... maybe we're due an Indian summer - who knows!?




Anyway - hope you enjoy some of the shots I took today....

I cannot believe how long it's been since I left a comment on here - thank you to all who've visited and for your patience - it's not always easy juggling a blog site and a business!

Chris - thanks for popping by and good to see you're around again - hope everything's doing well with you - will have a visit to your blog as soon as time allows.. :-)

Hi Marmee - you were asking about the butterfly - I'm pretty sure it's a Brimstone and the flowers are infact Osteospurmum - they love a sheltered sunny location and don't stop flowering all summer! See you again soon...

Hi Joe - welcome to my blog and sorry it's taken me SO long to reply... hope yours is going well too. I just love autumn for all the lovely rich colours.

& Finally... a welcome to Sabbaar too - thanks for your kind comments and glad you enjoyed my blog.

A bientot as they say in France! Miranda
