Season of mists

It’s a misty morning again today, and I am sitting here in my cozy study looking out over the garden settling into autumn, with the rowan from next door heavy with red berries, and our resident squirrel bounding across its branches. Our huge sage bush glistens in the morning light:


We have a very industrious spider – or maybe there is more than one – with webs spun all over the sage bush:


and all over the washing line:


Autumn webs

The virginia creeper is my pride and joy:


And this plant (what is it  – I used to know) thrusts its berries out to tempt the birds:


A nasturtium leaf gleams with dew:


Autumn is here, and it is time to start putting the garden to bed for another year.
