Reasons To Be Cheerful

October 31, 2011

The packet of white Cosmos Sensation seeds sown in June is still providing me with a vase full of flowers most weeks.

The Amelanchier canadensis is turning fiery red and blazing at the bottom of the garden just in time for bonfire night.

The Hydrangea petiolaris has turned a pineapple yellow and is glowing next to it.

The standard holly is awash with red berries for the birds as soon as they need them.

And the Arum italicum pictum is quietly filling the ground and looking more than ready for winter.

What’s not to like about autumn?

    Yes dark too early but then the bliss when the clocks go forward in spring.. I am a bit obsessed with paradox currently.
