Autumn that May last

One more week till autumn says goodbye.  Deciduous trees are in the last stage of their colour explosion. I will miss those vivid yellow, burnt orange, flaming red leaves of maple trees, liquid amber, plane trees, Chinese tallow and their like. I love walking on those colourful, soft leaf-lined streets where I go for my walk during my lunch break. As the trees prepare for the cold weather, our garden is showing resiliency. I've picked the last pumpkins, mandarins, tangelos and blood oranges. Mr Tassell planted some bulbs (daffodils, ranunculus, hyacinths), foxgloves, sweet peas, and heaps of annuals.  Whilst the winter veggies are gently moving ahead. Snow peas, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are growing well. English spinach, shallots and  some mesculin mix salad are almost ready to pick.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable spring day!

I found this hopper sitting on the orchid, and I cant help myself but to take its photos. It didn't seem to bother him.

One of the talking points in our garden; the lady bird bath and her little friend; our boy bird feeder.

  1. Hi Aida,

    What beautiful images of late fall! I can almost hear the rustling of those burnt amber leaves, drying up due to windier weather. Your flowers are so pretty! Love the aloe vera in that bright butterfly pot!
