Jacqui

Once again photographs from home, of course.

The first, Kniphofia rooperi in full flower, a lovely vibrant orange for autumn.

Then one of my orchids, a cattleya hybrid. The single flower spike has four flowers, each flower is 6” wide so it’s quite difficult to photograph.

And another showing how beautifully frilly the flowers are.

Just to cheer everyone up I thought why not take a few  photos of the early colours of Autumn and add in the fresh white flowers of Cyclamen and the red of sedum spectabile. That's the old name but I don't know the new one. I am sure Mike will know it.

The yellow is a red stemmed cornus and the reddish leaved one is the oak leaved hydrangea.

The end of summer.

Here is a photo of the end of season begonias. I don't know how everybody else got on with theirs this year but mine were excellent.

Another photo of the last flowers with the crocosmia shining bright in the afternoon sunshine.

We have never had a crop like this before! Any mycologist out there to identify?

Lesley

Seasons of mists...

Interesting fungi in the woods.

Another atmospheric morning.

Lake District colours.

Fuschia and hydrangeas brightening up Autumn.
