This morning I trained my camera on the garden from various vantage points
beginning with our en suite bathroom window.
From the patio can be seen, against the kitchen wall, some of the glorious zinnias that Jackie grew from seed and spread abundantly around the beds;
and this corner of the Pond Bed sporting Delta’s Sarah fuchsia, geraniums, petunias, and the ubiquitous erigeron;
this side of the Chilean lantern Bed, with its begonias, Japanese anemones, and dahlias lies alongside
the Gazebo Path, dappled by a sunny interval, as was
the owl and Mrs Popple fuchsia in the Cryptomeria Bed,
and the Weeping Birch bed with its well out of season kniphofias, and further fuchsias.
Shadows were cast across the Brick Path and its flanking flowers.
Finally I focussed on the prolific varieties of bloom around the Wisteria Arbour. These are our colours on the brink of October.
The Header Picture shows the Brick Path when we were recovering from heavy storms one day nearer October last year.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s wholesome cottage pie, firm broccoli and cauliflower, crunchy carrots, tender cabbage, and meaty gravy with which the Culinary Queen drank Hogaarden, I drank Comté Tolosan Rouge, and Flo and Dillon abstained.
