Tuesday View (14th October)

It poured with rain last night, and when I looked out this morning I immediately noticed a change in the colours of the leaves, as well as a great number lying on the ground. And yet I think there is little change in the rockery itself compared with last week…

The acer is possibly at its peak now, and I think the greener leaves will probably drop before changing colour this year… funny how it varies from year to year. The dwarf Miscanthus below the acer always flowers beautifully, but the giant one behind it (see an old post here for more photos) only produces a few flowers every few years… no signs of any yet…

There are still a few late summer flowers too – this Lychnis was a lovely surprise this morning…

And although the asters are starting to fade, the butterflies (here a Comma) are still visiting them…

THE rose is still flowering… to defy me?!

And finally the Persicaria that I have mentioned many times is still offering sustenance to the bees…

Are you still seeing bees or butterflies?
