Tuesday at Two (October 15th)

Where did last week go?

The same way as the leaves on the Maple at the bottom of the garden I suspect. With a gust of wind and heavy rainshower a few days ago the tree was suddenly half naked. But the positive side is that it opens up the view beyond the garden, and the leaves on the ground seem to reflect light on a grey day like today.


Here’s an extra picture taken in the sun just two days ago.


Do you feel autumn is rushing along too fast?

  1. It does feel like autumn is going to be a fast one this year. We are expecting a cold front, which for us, is fairly early. Your maple tree is such a beautiful accent. I expect the changes to your garden will be very noticeable in the next few weeks!

  2. Still waiting for that golden October, mind you! Dull here too but very mild and it’s supposed to get very warm again – so we might still be in for some colourful days. Your Acer definitely takes the attention away from the grey skies, Cathy. PS: I ordered one today πŸ˜‰

    • Well, it IS changing daily, but I think it’s the light in the photo… it was a really yellowish golden light which was explained about an hour later with a thunderstorm and torrential rain!

  3. The rain and wind certainly seem to have taken their toll here during the last week or so Cathy. Still some lovely splashes of colour for you to enjoy πŸ™‚

  4. There’s still a lot of colour in your garden. Even though the sunshine is missing these days. Hopefully it won’t snow soon!

    • Oh I hope not Simone! There’s a lot to do before it snows and after it came so early last year I don’t want to get caught out again – some serious gardening at the weekend! πŸ˜€

    • We sometimes get beautiful light before a storm – and the maple really does brighten up the whole garden. I probably say the same every year, but this year that maple has been outstanding!

  5. Our autumn has been strange.. slow at first but now it’s just begun getting cold.. then back again to warm sunny days. We can’t figure out this weather for the life of us, lol! I love your garden.. so much color and beauty as far as the eye can see.. xx

    • Thank you Barbara! That’s nice to have some warmth late in the year when you know winter’s just round the corner. It’s been so damp and chilly here this month, but gardening weather is forecast for the weekend! πŸ˜€

    • The last two weeks were a blur for me certainly! I could start panicking about getting the garden put to bed for winter (we had snow at the end of October last year) and time running away from me, but then I see so much still flowering and think “what does it matter?” Hope you get a chance to enjoy some autumn days Sheryl, and maybe have a day or two off? πŸ˜‰
