Autumn splendour

Post image for Autumn splendour

We rather meanly only open in the summer. But I obsessively take photographs of the garden all year round. I wrote about it in the Telegraph.

You will look in vain for plant names – unless you send me them, in which case I will add them.

So I thought I might as well do something with some of them (there are thousands – it’s too easy with digital, isn’t it?). Here is autumn!

So lovely, no wonder you keep it to yourself.

AnneWareham November 4, 2016 at 11:25 pm

I wouldn’t if I didn’t find keeping it all visitor ready and meeting and greeting exhausting. Shame really. Thanks!

Well there’s one photo you should sell to GAP. Caption it “Man riding on lawn mower.” Then you could sell it along with Charles’ photo of “Woman riding on lawn mower” as a matched pair! Though in his photo you were actually doing something rather than posing 🙂 xx

Nice idea. But he wasn’t posing, he was accidentally smiling!

Looking good! I particularly like the dark purple tone of that bush in front of the vitas on on the right hand side in the last pic. What is it?

clare November 4, 2016 at 7:43 pm

“vitis” obviously. Spell check = death to hort. names.

AnneWareham November 4, 2016 at 11:24 pm

Understood! Bother – a couple of rather more usually browny purpley shrubs, that names of which are currently escaping me. I will come back to you when the names pop back up. Xxx

Looks lovely..a beautiful garden in all seasons.

AnneWareham November 4, 2016 at 11:26 pm

Thank you, Helen. xx

“Seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness” indeed. Well, maybe no fruit but certainly very mellow. Wish we had such fall beauty.

Inescapable, that wonderful poem. Always creeping in the autumnal consciousness. It is a very beautiful season here and much less to do with me than summer. Does it all by itself somehow, beyond arrangement.

It’s a shame that the NGS gardens are usually open from 2 until 5, and the majority in May and June. Professional photographers usually want to prowl in gardens at dawn. I like to prowl at dusk (glass in hand). The last two weeks of October are such a delight in gardens, Anne, thanks for sharing.

What beautiful sights and sites, Anne. Thank you for sharing. We are awash with autumn colours here in Southern Ontario, and I treasure every day.

Sadly, I think wind and rain are on their way here! It has been great though, truly magic.

Looks lovely. We must visit next season as we are often in Bristol

AnneWareham November 5, 2016 at 5:56 pm

You would be most welcome! Xx

AnneWareham November 25, 2016 at 10:09 am

Ah – think of the work and the upkeep! Xx
