First off, I have to apologise to any of you whose blog I haven’t visited yet to return comments from last week. I have a few health things going on with me right now, the weather has been playing havoc with my internet connection, both girls have had dreadful colds so none of us have slept and as a result I have fallen right behind with my reading and commenting. I promise though, that I will catch up with everyone this week and get up to date with you all.
Autumn is definitely here and judging by how cold it has become, winter isn’t far behind. The garden is very wet and soggy and there are leaves everywhere, with another mountain load still to come down! There is still colour though. My Hydrangea has changed colour again, but the flower heads are clinging on refusing to die away.
My Japanese Acer is still clinging onto it’s leaves, although it’s beginning to look a little droopy now.
My little yellow Acer is looking pretty spectacular. It really stands out against everything else.
Some of you may remember “Big Tree” from my posts during the summer. He is losing his leaves fast and not looking quite as magnificent as he does in spring and summer.
My Corkscrew Hazel has started to get it’s catkins. Poking out from the behind the crumpled leaves like spooky little white fingers.
Finally for this week, I had a little play with focal black and white and snapped my lovely apple feeder from behind the Corkscrew Hazel.
I am linking up with my lovely friend Annie from Mammasaurus for her beautiful How Does Your Garden Grow linky. Annie has really created something very colourful and beautiful and she work tirelessly to share the fabulous posts that link up. Do go and have a look, I guarantee you’ll find something to make you smile and brighten your day.
