The garden seemed damp and autumnal this morning – Constance and I took a short turn around to see what was going on…
The Japanese Maple is beautiful – the bark is red, and the leaves turn yellow and brown.
The evergreen Rhododendron is not dismayed by the season’s change, its leaves stay green, and it is even flowering!
On the other hand the larch is a deciduous conifer, and its needles turn colour and fall off.
We like all the colours in the individual oak leaves as they change…
…and on this stormy weekend it is comforting to see the nicely stacked woodpile.
