1. The fruits & colours. Here, the ornamental cherry colludes with an acer in party dress.
2. The last ditch harvest. Our first year growing saffron crocus, which essentially grows itself. Although they apparently do better in the ground, ours are in planters - getting down on my hag-self knees in order to pluck the saffron out . . . well, it ain't happening. The tweezers method of collecting explains why saffron is so expensive.
3. But there's still plenty of blossoming going on. The never ending calendula.
4. These wonderfully prolific bulbs found at a village plant stall years ago which I think are hesperantha, but correct me if I'm wrong.
5. Of course, the magnificent fatsia japonica wreaking bee ecstasies with its subtle but gorgeous scent.
6. Lastly, the elephant garlic sticking out their tongues at the promise of next year's cooking adventures.
