Tuesday View (26th August)

The last view for August this year… hasn’t summer flown by?!

(Look at the colour of the Acer palmatum on the right of the pink rose!)


I am no longer denying it… autumn is most definitely here.

Three weeks earlier than normal.

But nonetheless beautiful.

The large maple at the bottom of the garden is turning red and dropping leaves already. And the changing light, strong breeze and cool temperatures indicate its glory will be all too short as usual! Even the birch is slowly showing a tinge of pale gold.


The grasses are also yellowing while the seedheads flourish.


And the sedums are turning pink too.


As the rain falls again tonight I am happy that my garden is finally getting a good drink.


How is August coming to a close in your part of the world?
