I love the seasonal changes that October brings. Even at this late stage there are still some colourful 'treats' left in the garden as you'll see as you scroll through the images below:
|crab apple autumn fruits in the October sunshine|
|Schizostylis coccinea major | Kaffir Lily|
|Calamagrostis flowering plumes|
|Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' with the purple berries from the Callicarpa Beauty bush in the background|
|Erigeron karvinskianus daisy flowers|
|Purple scabious flowers|
This purple scabious just keeps flowering as I've been very diligent with the dead heading this year.
|Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy'|
|Pink Aster (one of the Island Series of mildew resistant varieties)|
|Purple Aster in my Mini Dixter|
|Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldstrum'|
|Humulus lupulus 'Aureus' hops|
Finally here's the birds eye view of a small part of the garden in October.
Thanks for stopping by today and I would love to hear from you.
