running to seed


Autumn is here and our last post was in August! 
What happened to those months in between?
How could they have disappeared so fast?

Well, here we are again, and all is well.


Mr Bingley checking over his conker collection ...


Mr Darcy demonstrating disdain for the worker ...


Harvest bounty at a wonderful garden centre we visited just outside Stratford.


Chinese Lanterns light up the garden even on the dullest day!


Dahlia bonanza, the one above is in our own garden,
but look at the display below at Baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire.


'Warm Welcome'

Our new orange rambling rose which we are training round the urn.


Lady Hillingdon flowers one more time!

  “The summer-flower has run to seed,
And yellow is the woodland bough;
And every leaf of bush and weed
Is tipt with autumn’s pencil now”.


John Clare ~ The Village Minstrel
