Home to an autumnal garden

View over the garden from the new border: Coreopsis 'Incredible, Incredible' at the front.
An overnight flight from Philadelphia brought me home this morning, after three weeks away, to a garden that has changed from summery to autumnal, but is still full of colour and interest. Here are a few snaps, taken on a glorious sunny but fresh day.

Achillea cv, Aster x frikartii  'Wunder von Stafa', Aster 'Freda Ballard' in the new border.

Crocus pulchellus x speciosus

Aster 'Little Carlow'

Colchicum 'Dick Trotter'

Zauschneria californica 'Dublin' and Lespedeza bicolor 'Gibraltar'

Up the garden path in the late afternoon.


  1. It does have hints of autumn - I really like your combination of Zauschneria californica 'Dublin' and Lespedeza bicolor 'Gibraltar' - that is one for the notebook! (Although I fear, we are far to wet here in West Wales for the Zauschneria)

  2. The garden looks stunning, especially in that golden sunshine. I also really like the combination of the Achillea with the different asters.

  3. I can't decide which picture, or you can say plants I like the most, all are beautiful. I live in NJ, 50 minutes from Philadelphia. I wonder how do you like American gardens.

  4. your symphyotrichum (aster) 'Little Carlow' is a great plant.Popular aster in New Zealand.
    Good photo.
