Autumn is here. Daylight savings ended last weekend and the weather has well and truly turned. The long warm days of summer are behind us. The garden takes on its end of season hues... seed heads and berries in warm russet tones, fading flowers and crisp curling leaves. It's not the best autumn in my memory but as always I only have to look around to find the beauty of the season.
Clockwise from top left: Cecille Brunner rose, pink salvia, federation daisy, Irish Yew berries, hydrangea, clematis seed head, delphinium, penstemon, chrysanthemum, foxglove, dahlia, echinacea. Middle: a foraged bouquet of berries and foliage. I have a seedling rowan tree that I grew from berries like this a couple of years ago, but it will be a while before it has berries of its own.
This is the yellow flowered clematis I showed you in March's flowers post. I like these seed heads a lot more than the flowers and they've lasted much longer than the flowers did, so it could still be a keeper.
I'm linking up to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day again. What is flowering in your garden this autumn/spring?
