The shades of Autumn in our garden
The leaves are beginning to slowly change colour in our garden .......
The gravel garden is at it's best at this time of year with the rubeckia goldstrum , grasses and sedum still providing an adundance of colour.
The verbena seeds eveywhere.
and the leaves are starting to fall adding a carpet of colour.
The apples are ready for picking....
without any assistance from Twinkle - she had her eye on something else!
There are a few flowers to pick, although the hydrangeas have now lost their colour. What is the highlight of your garden at the moment?
I have sneaked the last picture in, it was taken in Abbotsbury Gardens a few weeks ago it just captures for me the essence of Autumn.
I seem to spend more time in the kitchen in the Winter and Autumn and I have today made some roasted plum jam, it was easy to do and the flavour is so rich and intense. I picked up the recipe via Dialaja from Croatia see here (you will need to follow her link to the recipe - it translated into English with no problems). It would make a good item to add to a Christmas Hamper. It always fun trying recipes from all around the world and Dialaja has some lovely dishes and desserts, so do pop over and visit her.
Hope you are having a good weekend.
