Autumn comes in dribs and drabs at Rose Orchard Haus. We get more colour from the patch of late flowering gladiolus than from the trees. Because of all the wet weather the dahlias have been fabulous this year. The tree dahlia always delivers the last dahlia burst. When it flowers it’s a signal to expect big frosts soon - which will turn the whole plant black. I will enjoy it for its few days of delight What brings Autumn colour to your garden?
They say that every cloud has a silver lining but of course that is simply not true physically nor metaphorically. Hence I was pleased to see a cloud that really did have a silver lining this week. Sunsets in Autumn are usually beautiful, especially as they coincide with my daily 'quiet time'. My breath is often taken away when I look up from reading or writing to see how the sky has transformed in just a matter of minutes.
