I'm much more of a soft touch than I ever thought I was, too. I mean, snails are the enemy aren't they? And now I even like bloody weeds! As much as I know I need to get rid of them, these do look sweet.
I have been watching an anemone shoot up and up the last couple of weeks and yesterday it opened its petals and stood proud for all to see. I love its delicate seeds and how the petals look airbrushed with red. I think it looks so brave, relying on it's long, thin stem.
Autumnal decay is creeping in but there is still plenty of colour out there, with gorgeous honeysuckle, fuschia and calendula. I love the drama of this season as the summer flowers make their slow and steady descent to hibernation alongside autumn-flowering shrubs that are just getting into their stride.
