Two words summed up my garden today - orange and damp! We had drizzle all weekend and the moisture has really soaked into everything. That's a good thing, after the dry summer. I also think brick and terracotta look their best when slightly damp. The colour is much richer than the dry pinkness you get in summer. So from that point of view, I'm happy for damp autumn days.
There's quite a bit of weeding to do but since the soil is so soggy I didn't touch it. What a great excuse, right? It probably wasn't too wet to sweep up the leaves, but I left them alone just in case.

Orange leaves against a turquoise sky. A classic autumn colour combo that you just can't beat.
