The pond has a thin green film over it again
but the little stream is flowing clear.
Little berries - the thorns on this plant are vicious.
These bright berries were still wet with dew.
Seed pods - the stems remind me of rusted wire.
Leaves spilling through the railings above the cafe courtyard.
More drops of water - like tiny diamonds on these ornamental grasses.
Red flowers - still going strong.
Two men passed by - one man said how lovely it was to see so many colourful flowers at this time of year.
The structure and colour contrast of these fascinate me.
Red leaves and love-in-a-mist seed pods.
The clumps of red grasses have coloured right up to their tips now - crazy colours - specially with a blanket of pinky red Michaelmas daisies behind them.
There's so much red and pink everywhere at the moment.
Little pods at the top of one of the trees with big leaves. This tree is shorter than the others so it's easier to see the pods.
The light was shining through this shrub making it look really pretty. (Don't get too close though it smells pretty dreadful!)
Callicarpa berries - so many this year.
The colour of this plant is incredible. I said last time that it was like a burning bush - it's even more like one now!
Tiny seed pods with spikes.
Colourful berries and leaves.
Spindle berries opening.
The biggest tree slices have been taken away.
There are piles of sawdust and wood shavings lying around.
The view through the crushed hedge into the damaged herbaceous border.
While zooming in to take a better photo of the white stone buried in the part of tree that the branch broke from, I noticed a smooth grey stone slightly lower down which I hadn't seen before. A very odd place for a collection of stones.
Glimpses of red in the splitting crocosmia pods.
Wild carrot seed heads - a mass of intricate shapes.
Delicate red flowers.
Cosmos buds - still more opening.
Double white cosmos flower among the purple Michaelmas daisies.
A red salvia growing up through another flower. What a colour combination!
Neatly shaped shrub.
The pond may have a thin green film over it but you can still see the fish.
Thank you very much for joining me.
