|Japanese anemones - Anemone hupehensis var. japonica|
|Our view of Woodbury looking more autumnal.|
Head Gardener & Chief Blogger has been a tad quiet of late so here's an overdue update.
Autumn is fast arriving here at Pear Tree Cottage and we had been enjoying some beautifully, still and warm days. Many robins fill the garden with their songs and as Rudbeckias, Echinaceas and Phlox begin to fade, Japanese anemones sparkle, Sedums are nearing their moment of glory and the rich reds of the Rowan berries, rose hips and haws glisten in the sun. Cider apples in the adjacent orchards glitter like jewels as they catch the ever lowering sun. Mornings are cool and dewy with mists hanging in the valley below. Pears are ripening and over ripe figs are falling. Butterflies are feeding on the figs and wasps are feeding on both!
