Enjoying a few quiet days here, in the lead up to my brocante tour that starts on Wednesday. The sun is shining, the garden and the forest are calling, and I have favoured the great outdoors over a screen and a to-do list.
My autumn garden always is full of dahlias, japanese anemones, hydrangeas and some late roses. Putting them together in this way is quick and a great visual reminder of what is happening in the garden each month, and helpful when it comes to planting for the next year.
This year for the first time in ages I shall be lifting a lot of my dahlias, so it is especially important to remember how each one flowers, and where I would like to position it next year.
This afternoon was particularly balmy, full of soft autumn sunshine and a sweet leafy smell on the air.
I picked a sample of blooms from the garden, then took my camera up with me on the hill behind the house, and found that the afternoon light was predominantly pink.
Sometimes its important to just savour the moment ….
hope you’re enjoying a lovely weekend, thank you for reading me
