Tree Following October 2015 - Sorbus Autumn Spire
The garden this evening is cloaked in the most beautiful golden light, yet sadly, my camera just does not pick up the the warm glow it casts. We've had some welcome rain. It's been a while since we had such a significant fall. Trotting out to get a few shots, it occurs to me that I struggle to find another time of the year with which to compare the magical feel the garden and plants take on right about now.
I had hoped my wee rowan tree would be putting on a fine autumn display by the time this month's Tree Following post came round however that seems not to be the case.
There are brief glimpses of the change that is about to take place.
The late blooms that appeared last month are now open.
Those prominent red stems are glowing too.
I have weeded and cleared some of the perennials that were long past their best. An Aster and Persicaria are all that remains in bloom here right now. The autumn colour from the Persicaria and Cornus are most prominent here. The small Viburnum sargentii Onondaga isn't doing too bad either.
I plan to take weekly shots to include in next month's post. I am hoping to capture my tree's transformation into a true Autumn Spire. Thanks for reading and with the weekend fast approaching - have a good one!
