  1. Glorious colour Sue!
    Rain featured heavily in my last lot of pictures too... it adds something I think.

    1. It does add something, rusty I love photos with raindrops on and it was when taking one of these that I noticed looking through a raindrop turns everything upside down.

  2. Beautiful. I especially love the fuscia, it's gorgeous.

  3. Some glorious colour there. I lost my Chinese Lantern, I think they're so pretty, especially as the lanterns start to deteriorate and go all lacy. Must look at getting another, though I think I've got a packet of seeds so I should have a go with them.

    1. Only the top two photos were taken in our garden, Jo, the rest were last week's garden visits. So I don;t possess a Chinese Lantern plant either.

  4. Is that Fuschia 'Hawkshead' Sue? I have a couple of those in my garden too and are still in bloom. They cope very well in the ground here but suprisingly the one I have in a big planter has been decimated by the winds - the rest are fine!

    1. I don't know, Linda as it was growing in the grounds of Dunster Castle in Somerset which we visited several days ago.

    1. I've never tried growing them, Elaine. They were growing in the garden at Barrington Court in Somerset that we visited on the 6th.

  7. Beautiful photography, Love the crotoneaster(?). I have got one and ther birds rely on it in winter, such a joy to watch in winter. That fuschia is beautiful and delicate.

    1. It certainly had plenty of berries, Sharon so the birds are in for a treat.

  8. Look at the berries on the Cotoneaster - certainly those little birds will be very grateful in the coming months. Chinese lanterns are gorgeous. Have never tried them before.

    1. Violets? The blue flower is a vinca or periwinkle, Snowbird

  11. Whether in your own gardens or on visits, Sue, you've captured some of the loveliest colours around at the moment. I'm seeing those purple asters everywhere this year and was lucky to spot physalis and teasels during garden visits last weekend. The physalis was growing through a hawthorn bush and looked so ready for hallowe'en! There's no escaping autumn!

    1. We went to Temple Newsam, Caro this afternoon for a walk in the grounds and they had a long border just full of the aster (Michaelmas Daisy) It was a collection of different varieties in all shades of purple and all differing heights and it looked beautiful.

    1. They are, Rooko and I think the light at the moment makes the colours more vibrant as it doesn't wash them out.

  13. Loved that periwinkle, reminds me that I need more blue flowers in my garden, do you remember its full name?

    1. It didn't have a name plate, Helene but guessing I think it looked like vinca minor. Vinca major has similar coloured flowers but don't gp for atropurpurea as it has purple flowers, You can buy a variegated variety too
