A splash of colour


I do love the colours of autumn. Summer colours are lovely too in their bright, happy way but there is something about the autumnal tones that I love. I tend to choose these colours for winter clothing, they seem to suit the redhead colouring that I have.

We've tidied up the garden this weekend and whilst all the vibrant summer flowers have gone, we have quite a few evergreen plants and I noticed that the sedum is so pretty in amongst the greenery. It seems to be spreading around the garden too, every year there is some growing somewhere new. It looks lovely beneath the burgundy leaves of the acer and I know it will be flowering now for some time.
I love these sunny autumn days and I hope we still have a few more in store before the wet and dismal days of November come in. I really am a tropical gal at heart, clearly meant to live in some warm Mediterranean climate rather than the uncertain weather that we 'enjoy' in the UK!

Lovrly photo - the colours really shine. Yes, I understand the tropical versus the cold UK bit! I'm enjoying the sedums here too, and the heads still look good right across the winter frosts. Such an uncomplaining plant!
