And the sky is grey… well, I did go for a walk as the song suggests, on a not-so-winter’s day. The sky may not be very grey but winter is just around the corner. The autumnal garden changes so rapidly that I thought I’d better take a walk and show you around the garden and its variant colours.
This weeping cherry puts on a very different display in autumn. Gone are the pinks of spring and the greens of summer, now replaced by gold and russet.
The red hues of the Japanese Maple carpet the ground.
This maple will soon lose its red hues…
There will be much time spent raking leaves during the month of May.
Currently there are many interested Japanese tourists in our area admiring the seasonal changes. These wonderful colours shed a final luminescence before the barren, grey of winter sets in.
The golden elm resplendent in its regal colours!
This particular dogwood could glow in the dark!
Gone are the ornamental apricots on this weeper….
The cats joined me on the garden tour.
What ever the season in your part of the world, I wish you happy gardening in nature’s truly amazing playground! Thanks for following and may all your days be garden days!

Beautiful fall colors! Just in the last 2 days we have had our spring trees bloom. The magnolia are gorgeous! After a long grey winter we are ready for spring. 😉 Either season, Spring or Fall, is so beautiful with color isn’t it?
Hi Bridget, yes, all seasons have their unique appeal. Spring is such a time of renewal in the garden – sounds like you will be enjoying every minute, cheers,
Wonderful Autumn colour there. Love the Maples.
Hi Bridget, thanks – isn’t nature simply splendid! We have a few maples but there are more down the street – enjoy your Spring,
