More from yesterday in the garden

When we think of Golden Rod the mind immediately recalls the long wands of golden flowers that grace the summer months.  But it remains attractive at this time in rather different way.  The fading leaves provide a range of autumn shades and the seed heads have their own appeal.

This fungus appeared overnight at the base of a sawn down tree.  I’ve no idea what sort it is.  Perhaps someone can help?

As the leaves on the Cotinus change they often develop this strange  –  but colourful and attractive  – skeletal pattern.  Somehow it seems appropriate following Halloween!

At the end of the day we enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

  1. True, fall shares her own range of color and textures. Wonderful.

    Aren’t the colours beautiful? Yes, they are. It has taken me a while to come around to autumnal things since being somewhere summery. The conditions just didn’t do it for me like the light and happy colours of paradise. I still miss them … But I am coming around … 🙂

  3. I understand. The colours are beautiful – magical – but autumn has little else to commend it. In fact, I can’t think of anything!!
