It's amazing how much things can change in the garden in a week or so! I suppose the multiple light frosts we've had throughout October and going into November add to the changes this time of year.
Left & Below: This tree has gorgeous purple leaves in the Summer. In the Autumn it looks fantastic as the leaves turn a bronze colour before dropping.
Variety: Copper Beech (I think but not 100%).
|Above and Below: Photo taken approx a week apart. A week makes a big difference - the leaves soon drop and the Autumn colour begins to disappear, looking more Wintry.|
|Above and Below: Photo taken about a week apart. The pine tree is quickly going from green to yellow pine needles and needles are beginning to drop to the ground.|
|Above and Below: Photo taken approx a week apart Not sure there's much noticeable change but seems the colour is disappearing e.g. the blue forget-me-nots, etc.|
|Above and Below: Last week the courgette / zucchini were still going strong; this week they've been zapped by frost and are pretty much finished.|
|The runner beans have been finished off by frost.|
|Above: Kaffir Lily with Sedum Autumn Joy are slightly past their best (in my opinion) but still look lovely in the garden.|
Below: Aster and Sedum Autumn Joy.
Burrr, it was cold taking photos today!
