Still no indication that we are 27 days into Autumn/Fall.
This first picture was captured on the 22nd.
Roses from the very tall rose bush at the back of the garden.
Crocosmia on 24th.
Crocosmia really coming into bloom,..25th.
Lupin still in bloom 25th.
Pink Hollyhock thriving,..still some Hollyhocks yet to start blooming,..22nd.
Not only are your flowers beautiful, but I love how you captured the sun shining through them in your photos.
Everything looks so vibrant. I have a weakness for hollyhocks, yours look healthy.
thank you for the nice comments,..i guess its become a habit taking shots of the flowers with the sun shining through,..many times while taking a tea break i spot the sun hitting a flower in a certain way and grab the camera,..it doesn't always work but when it does it looks great.
this was my first year growing Hollyhocks,..we get so much rain here,..and mists,..the Hollyhock leaves get too wet and problems set in,..i guess i was just lucky,..no problems at all,..every Cottage Garden should have them,..a multitude of flowers,..vertical.
Today the sun was shining.
It puts a glow to the Hollyhocks.
This Hydrangea was a cutting i took last season,..its just blooming this week.
Some roses captured today.
Oh, Wow, you grow so many things that we can't even attempt in Texas! Love your pictures, especially the roses, you're getting me interested in getting back into photography after many years.
Thank you Ogrose,..one name comes to mind which describes where i live,..Green Isle,..and its an apt name,..we do have lots of greenery the whole year round,..but then we also have too much moisture,..so everything will grow,..alas even Mildew.
I just love to capture what i see in the garden,..i use a small pocket camera,..a Sony Cybershot DSC-W55,..it does the job but some colours are very hard to capture,..red and orange in particular,..oh do take out the camera again and experiment.
A very large and heavy rose.
Another top heavy,..in fact it breaks the canes.
An attractive visitor.
An evening shot,..Crocosmia and Fuchsia.
Sempervivium tectorum,'Hens and Chicks'.
Out and about,..on the doggy walk route.
The Doggy Walk Route starts at the location of the above picture and ends up back at my house which is near the Castle.

All beautiful, but I especially love the Crocosmia and Fuchsia combo.
Just a little piece of heaven, thanks for brightening up my morning.
the Crocosmia were already growing in that area when i planted the Fuchsia,..in fact it was the only place i had for the Fuchsia so i am glad you like the combo as i was never sure about those two colours,..the picture below was taken in the last few moments.
glad i was able to brighten up your morning,..some more Crocosmia.
I have a border of Sedum which was covered by Aquilegia up to last month,..its 10Ftx6Ft,..the Sedum is planted in long containers with rocks for it to cascade over,..its just started to flower,..though very late due to being covered but knock on wood it may flower completely before the season runs out.
The 10Ft border.
The 6Ft border.
From the front,..Phyllitis scolopendrium,'Harts Tongue Fern'.
-----------------Plectranthus madagascariensis,'Variegated Mint'.
All of them are beauties,i love the strolls thru your gardens.Those roses are amazing,as are the hollyhocks.TFS
Beautiful all the way around...photography, plant choices, plant locations, all of it.
Thank you Kathi,..its nice to know you stroll through the paths,..just now they are very narrow as plants have filled in,..but the benefit of that is you can not help brushing against plants like the Curry Bush,..Lavender,..Mint,..Lemon Balm,..Tangerine Sage,..and Purple Fennel.
Thank you tj for the nice comments,..glad you enjoyed the views.
There are several paths.
The Main path.
Continue through halfway path.
First path off main path.
Third path off main path,..and so five paths in all.
Only the main path can be seen from the back door,..you have to go look for the paths.
Beautiful! I also especially love the Crocosmia and Fuchsia combination and would have never thought about putting them together.
Thank you Sandi,..those Crocosmia are popping up around the red roses as well,..its a dark part of the garden so they brighten things up.
