Up the path towards the steps, using the zoom on the camera I could see yew berries - not just a few but thousands and thousands covering the tree that from a distance looked like a plain dark green evergreen to me.
Leaf skeleton with raindrops
No evidence of pods on the golden rain tree this year
That splash of red grass is very red
Yellow flowers still giving colour to the prairie beds
Falling leaves forming pools of colour underneath their trees until they're moved by the wind - or the gardener.
Giant leaves falling from a young tree
Banana flower with another petal opening. The weather is still so warm that the plant hasn't been wrapped yet.
Korean pine cone with resin that looks granulated now. I didn't prod it to see if it was still sticky - I had enough trouble trying to remove the stickiness last time I touched it.
Some of the trees are shedding their autumn colours really quickly now.
String of berries
Wet leaves sticking to whatever plant is in their way
Leaves displaying their colours on a bench
The big beech tree from the lawn.
Water droplets on leaf and stem
I thought there were white fuchsias but when I looked closer I discovered they're pink and lilac.
Starry seed head
Seed pods by the pond
Shiny red berries against peeling green paint
Thank you very much for joining me.
