The Tuesday View: 27th September 2016

This week I can see many changes in the view as autumn gets a grip… the cooler nights have stopped fresh growth and much of the foliage is changing to its autumn colours. (The acer in the background is a lovely pale orange at the moment.)

In the above photo I tried to get exactly the same angle as last week’s, standing on the balcony and zooming in on the rockery. By lunchtime, most of the sun has gone from the sloping southern part; with the sun already much lower in the sky it is shaded by our fir trees.

The focus this week is the pink rose again, now that the red one is taking a break, but the lilac aster between the two roses is also calling modestly for a little attention…

Can you see it? I’ll get a little closer…

I am not sure of its name, but never mind.

I can still admire it!

And finally this is one of the smaller sedums planted in the rockery this spring – Sedum telephium ‘Herbstfreude’ (Autumn Joy), which says it all really…

As I feature this same view each week to watch the changes throughout the year, I would be pleased if anyone else wants to join in. Please share by adding a link in the comments. 🙂
