Mists and mellow fruitfulness…

It’s been a bit soggy of late, so I’m bracing myself for the next 6 months of mud as we wade through a West Country winter.

But it’s not all gloom and doom – to remind us the garden’s not over just yet, here are some pics I’ve taken in the last few days…

I ‘heart’ this lovely deciduous tree – Cercis Canadensis ‘Forest Pansy’. Here growing in a large pot in my garden, where it’s autumn colour never fails to draw comment. The berried pyracantha looks best at this time of year too, great trained in horizontal layers along a stone wall.

This is a mixed border in Lyme Regis I designed around 4 years ago. The contrast in colours intensifies as the season goes on….

And this Uplyme gravel garden is now in it’s 3rd year when the planting has really matured. Prairie-style planting reaches it’s zenith about now……
