This week we’ve had typical autumn weather. On Monday, we were blown off Ben Lomond and it didn’t stop raining all day Tuesday; but the last couple of days have been warm and sunny although there has been ice on the puddles in the morning. I’d earmarked today to do some programming but the weather was so nice I took some time off for a wee dauner in the garden with my camera.
We have quite a small garden but the previous owner had put in lots of different kinds of plants and we continued the process through a policy of buying plants on offer and shoving them into the ground, wherever there was a space. As you might expect, this has had mixed success but given my gardening ignorance, it’s probably no worse than any other approach. So, there’s lots of variety for photography. At this time of year, what’s obvious is that the garden is in transition – some plants have given up for the year and are withering, some are still in bloom and producing buds and others aren’t sure and are doing a bit of both. We haven’t got the full-blown Deeside autumn colours yet, but leaves are starting to turn.
