The late afternoon autumn sun lights up my kitchen window, overlooking our Golden Robinia tree and Thunbergia Grandiflora vine with its purple trumpet flowers. This is a last look at the lush greenness before the leaves turn yellow and fall. Now that the heat has gone out of the days we can focus on the garden again. I love the way gardening gives you such gentle exercise, you don't realise you've been using and stretching muscles until you stop.
The cycad pup that we transplanted back in December appeared to be dried up and dead, so I was delighted to see that it has at last sprouted a few pale green fronds.
This photo I took (with my modest camera) in the morning just after sunrise. It is a favourite corner for spiders and so we know to be wary when walking along this path. The webs are so beautiful, I try and avoid knocking them down unless I have to.
