Enter Autumn

Sad that the brief summer that we’ve had seems to have disappeared as quickly as it came. It was wonderful while it lasted, but ten weeks out of fifty two isn’t what I call an even balance., but what can we do? nothing……………………..Except try and find beauty in the changing face of Nature.
Here are a few photos of some of the flowers in my garden that have blossomed since the weather has cooled , I hope you enjoy them as much as I do
This sunflower is a self seed, probably from the bird seed that dropped from the feeder, there are another two not yet in bloom.

The Passion Flower looks quite exotic, and the story of Jesus and his disciples is fascinating.
          I love the simplicity of the Osteospernum, It’s so easy to grow and spreads well.
