The weather has definitely taken a turn for the worse here and Autumn is in full swing. I’m amazed though at the number of plants that are still flowering and am delighted by how much colour seems to be lingering.
Sadly my beautiful creeper has reached the end of it’s glory, it has been wind ravaged and is now almost naked.
I have gathered up a huge bag of the gorgeous leaves with a craft idea in mind! Haha, yes, me, with my limited craft ability am contemplating making something. You may not actually get to see because whilst it looks wonderful in my head, the reality will probably be a whole lot different…..watch this space.
I’ve also been back on the mushroom hunt and have found out that these huge ones are Parasol mushrooms and edible (although, I think I’ll pass!).
My apple trees are still providing us with fruit and although they are beginning to die off now my Autumn Raspberries are fabulously sweet, possibly even nicer than the summer ones.
My Hydrangea is showing no signs of stopping blooming and once again this year my Montbretia has flowered late.
So that’s my offering for this week. It will be strange to see the trees naked again when the leaves finally all come off, but for now I’m looking forward to more golds, reds, oranges and browns, pumpkins, fireworks and bonfire smoke.
I am linking up with the fabulous Annie from Mammasaurus for the beautiful How Does Your Garden Grow linky, a real highlight of my blogging week.
