There was lovely autumn sunshine yesterday. I went into the garden in my Hallowe’en get up to take a few pictures. The garden isn’t as exciting to me now but I think I should have a record of what it looks like in a different season.
Autumn is seriously beautiful. The other day I drove back home from the weekly shop through an orange tunnel of trees. Low sun, autumn leaves, winding roads through the woods. There was definitely some magic going on.
I haven’t got much to say today. It was only five minutes in the garden, finding what I liked best about it.
There is one last courgette hanging on. And since I can’t be bothered to tear up the bedraggled runner beans yet, there are still some of those too.
One bed dug over and manured. Nasturtiums are trying their luck. I could salad them up before the frosts, I suppose.
I’m most impressed with the hosta seeds. Pretty! Last year I took some of these and planted them. Nowt happened. Next year I’m really going to look after my hostas. This year so many snails and slugs dined on them, they ended up looking like lace.
That’s it for now. Shock,horror, I have done very little crochet in the last week. We’ve been away for half term and had poorliness. I’ve taken to reading more too, which takes up stitchy time. I’ll try and find a better balance this week.
Ps. I found a couple more dodgy pictures of my little halloween garland.

Fabulous photos as always. Your autumnal garden looks amazing. I’ve appreciated autumn more than ever this year 🙂
Thank you!! Autumn has been especially lovely this year. I remember it was the same last year but then it rained and all the leaves were knocked from their branches.
I love to enjoy the garden and love to see others gardens! (i like crochet too! but have not done any for ages and keep wanting too!)
I love other people’s gardens too!
Thanks for the close up of the bat 🙂.
You are welcome! 🙂
I have really enjoyed Autumn this year… So many lovely sunny days too showing off all the colours. I like all the different shades of green in your photos.
Cute hallowe’en garland too! Xx
