I ran around the garden taking these photos before the autumn winds strip the place bare of leaf colour. I think that my garden is often more colourful in October than it is during that August lull when the best flowers seem to have exhausted themslves. You can see viburnum berries, some leaves of my liquidambar tree (for years I misspelled that) and a red/purple physocarpus.
A young silver birch and pink sedum
The mystery berry tree, which might be some sort of service tree with a few rudbekia flowers and rhus leaves in the background.
Lilac mallow flowers and what I think is a blue cyprus, I’ll need to look up its label.
The osteospermums and lobelia still going strong in an old chimney pot. They’ve flowered since early summer and the frost hasn’t got them yet. The acer you can see is in a planter, mainly because I can’t find a space to plant it out in the garden. I hope it survives.
The Christmas tree has grown a lot in the last few years.
