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.

Change is in the air

The photos below were taken during a stroll along the bridle way on Sunday morning, the last day of September.  There are clear indications of the transition from late summer into autumn.

Rose Bay Willow Herb

There are more waves to come but today we’ll have something a little different.

Autumn

The rosy florets of bay willow

By hoary breath of some enchanter

Are translated into feathery plumes,

White as angel wings,

And leaves, brittle red and papery thin,

Carpet the thirsty brown soil.

June Grasses (1)

The range of grasses flowering at this time is enormous.  Although they do not usually attract as much comment as petalled flowers they are, nevertheless, quite distinctly different from each other and deserve closer attention.  They also provide good subject material for the photographer!
