FOR THE BEAUTY OF THE EARTH
I always arrange my post in the Six on Saturday format, numbering and labelling each of my little paragraphs, but this week I am going freestyle. I hope you can overlook this mini rebellion. As Autumn draws in, and Winter appears on the horizon, garden pickings will become much slimmer, so I'm celebrating the bounty while I get the chance.
The first set of photos are of the Rose Garden. How much the light has changed now the sun hangs lower in the sky. This was taken early afternoon, yet the shadows are so long.
The Long Border is still flowering happily and these colours seem to suit the Autumn light, even on a dull day.
I'm sure we all wonder from time to time whether all that seed sowing and overwintering of tender plants, all that dead heading, weeding and watering are worth it. But on a sunny day like that one, I begin to think perhaps it is.
Happy gardening to you, and many thanks to the Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
