Autumn colour

I have really enjoyed the last few weeks of colour in the garden.  Lilac is our theme at present.
Autumn crocus. These keep popping up in odd corners and our neighbour keeps giving us more bulbs as well.

Perennial asters in a ball of colour!  I made this plant by gathering seeds from one we paid £4.99 for 18 months ago.  It is just as good as its "mother" plant.

Annual asters. I brought these for 25p a packet in Wilco and did not get to sew them till late - but they have been great value in the borders and as cut flowers.
This colour is especially significant to me as it was the colour of my bridesmaid dresses and bouquets in October 1971.  It is our 46 th wedding anniversary.


  1. Happy anniversary to you both, beautiful colour, I was an October bride too in 1978. 40 next year.

  2. Happy Anniversary!

    God bless.

  3. Happy 46 th Anniversay. It will be ours on Christmas Eve and my bridesmaid also wore purple. Catriona
