What a fabulous start to Autumn..........the garden is a mix of Summer flowers still in bloom and fabulous Autumnal colours................. the best of both seasons.................
even the sunsets are full of colour.............................

When I was a child at school, evil and gremlinesque, I used to take giant rosehips, carefully open over newspaper with tweezers or something, remove pips from the red sides of the fruit and cluster together as much of the fibres as possible with the minimum of pips. This we bunched up into little plastic bags. Stealthily on the bus we would open said bag and drop entire contents down some unsuspecting person's collar. Oh the look on their face ten minutes later as they had a sudden itchy time!!

It sounds to me like you are really enjoying your lessons!
Your garden is a riot of colour still, and I agree you have the best of both looks beautiful.

Well you will be glad to her that I have made a start on my long left garden, I am going for a low maintainance garden with pots and tubs, I have a few well established plants growing and I'll leaves these alone. I will be adding a feeding station for the birds and buying in some plants to attract bees and such like.
Thank you for giving me a visual kick up the butt on this... your pictures will inspire me forward.
