It was my daughter’s birthday yesterday, so I picked what my garden had to offer. A rather strange mix of colours, but definitely autumnal.
They sit in a metal jug that has ‘Made in Yugoslavia’ printed on the base – a bit of European history as Yugoslavia no longer exists. What a complicated story that piece of the world has.
I have included leaves of Liquid Amber and the berries of this shrub
Can anyone tell me what it is? Cathy?
Joining Cathy’s garden party over on Rambling in the Garden which a such a wonderful celebration of flowers in bloom all over the world
I included Pheasant berries
And self-sown asters
which are a-buzz with flies and bees at this time of year
I’m hoping someone can identify this bee
Murtagh’s Meadow will know, I’m sure.
I’ve learnt from her website that many bees are identified by their bums! – so here it is..
The butterflies love it too
And at night I see little pale moths flitting around it. My front garden is a mess by my neighbour’s standards but it really is a wildlife haven and I love it.
I had to include one of my favourites, Schizostylis – has this got a prettier common name?
It’s fairy’s skirt of a flower deserves a better name. I love the twist of the bud
and the tint and pattern of the stalk carrying the waiting blooms.
Today she is dancing in to Cee’s Flower of the Day.
