Some of you already know I am not a fan of Autumn and Winter as they just last too long for me. Short grey days, cold, misty, slippery roads…..
This morning I took a picture of an oak tree in my garden, mind you, it was a sunny day so I thought I’d take a few pics.
This is a 40 year old European oak, its leafs are smaller and less colourful in Autumn than those of the American oak. I haven’t got a clue how tall it is but it it huge.
This is our neighbours birch tree.
Have a great weekend all !
THE END OF A SUNFLOWER
Plants and flowers are so much prettier with raindrops I think. We had a bit of rain last night and this morning I saw how pretty it was so I took a few pictures for you.
DAHLIA’S, ALWAYS PRETTY BUT JUST THAT BIT MORE WITH THE RAINDROPS ON
Have a great week !!
MUSHROOM ON A TREE
It is Autumn, the leafs are getting other colors, others already fell down but it still feels like Summer. The weather is still very warm, sunny and very dry over here, very unusual for October but the days are becomming shorter every day. So I took my camera and made a few pictures of all the colors in my garden at the moment.

PLATANUS (plane tree)
When the flowers of the sedum spectabile are opening it is a sign of Autumn comming closer. The days are definitely shorter, the evenings colder but after the crazy hot Summer we had I am welcomming Autumn for once, normally I am not so keen. The garden is a mess with burned plants and leafs but the sedum spectabile is looking good, ofcourse being a succulent it loves warm dry weather. And this plant is a heaven for bees and butterflies.
