An attempt to capture the late autumn tones of Edna’s Aspens.
The golden glow of the Aspens of Bickleigh Vale seen in the background here. Edna included them for their spectacular autumn display. She was well aware of their suckering habit and there is now a stunning advance of them through several properties.
Every year it’s worth waiting for at the end of autumn. Just as the ivy and maple colour is fading and the oaks have almost finished they will bring a smile to an almost winters day. The real beauty is in how they fade from golden to various shades of orange and ochre. Then of course they fall, fade to black smother everything and take around 10 years to decompose!! Well almost.
Such beautiful autumn colour. Mr 2 did proclaim that we must put the leaves back up!! Bless
Boston ivy starting to turn, wisteria golden hues and rose tinted gum - loving the autumn light. Starting to love the garden again. The long dry summer has taken a toll on many aspects of the garden and on me! I think after a quick whip around this afternoon with the mower I’m ready to tackle the big tidy up that is needed. Afternoons like this one are pretty inspiring. Thank you autumn light!
The abundance of Spring continues. The pretty pink and mauve hues popping amongst the green. and a lovely day in Bickleigh Vale for our grateful visitors from Ballarat. A gorgeous morning tea in the garden.
The wisteria has been particularly stunning this year but I wonder what will be left after tonight's wild weather. The white wisteria was only just opening on the house so I hope it survives the night.
