The leaves of the Amelanchier canadensis have flared into an intense orange and behind them a walnut tree, planted next door, has leaves of pineapple yellow. It’s a brief moment but glorious with dramatic colours in the garden and wider landscape and makes sweeping and bagging up the fallen leaves more than bearable.
On the allotment a row of Pak Choi Red Choi F1 is battling it out with the nasturtiums …
And marigolds, cosmos and dahlias are still going strong….
And I planted onions, shallots and garlic today plus 24 yellow tulips to come up through the rhubarb. And I have to mention these since it would be irritating to wait until they’re in flower and no longer available but I bought a hyacinth bulb in a glass hyacinth vase neatly boxed up in the Pound Shop-need I say more?
