I know it's Autumn 'cause...
There are weeds everywhere! It's way out of control. Now I like a bit of (what I would term) 'country style' (yes it's a euphemism)!!! One of my all time favourite books is Mirabel Osler's A Gentle Plea for Chaos.
It's a fab book and Mirabel Osler has a lovely voice - strong, independent, humorous, charming and calm. There is a tree house in the book that I would knock down and kill for.
But chaos is only attractive held on a short leash. My garden has slipped its leash and is running amuck! I'm actually quite embarrassed about its current state.
Still despite all that, there are still small vignettes that give joy...
The nerines, which come from my grandmother's garden (just ignore the grass), are my most favourite harbinger of Autumn.
As is Cyclamen hederifolium (hope you're still ignoring the weeds).
And the Glory Vine (which is totally out of control) is just beautiful. It was planted by Robert's grandmother. The purple flowers are Plectranthus ecklonii.
