I’ve probably mentioned once or twice that the only reason we initially came to view our house was because of the garden. I’d seen the house on right move and dismissed it straight away believing it to be too small for a family home. My husband persuaded me to give it a chance as he knew the garden was a big one as his school friend had lived next door.
For that reason the garden will always have a very special place in my heart as we both fell in love with the house the minute we walked through the door. Despite the darkness and the damp that was the result of it being empty and unloved for 18 months, this was the house we had to buy.
I love the garden in the summer, when we have one, but I love it even more at this time of year. I love cold, crisp mornings and the changing colours. I love the apple trees ready for picking and a carpet of fallen red fruit on the floor.
At the weekend as I headed out to pick the tomatoes from the greenhouse and harvest some apples I took the camera with me to capture this beautiful time of year in our English Autumn garden.
I could have sat for hours watching this little spider on his web.
Aren’t spiderwebs beautiful, especially in the morning?
It turns out I have a bit of a thing for taking photos of apples (there’s a phrase I never thought I’d write) these are only a few of the many, many pics I took.
Once O had spotted me out in the garden he wanted to come out too.
It will soon be the time for wrapping up indoors in front of the open fire but before that happens we’ll be making the most of the gorgeous Autumnal days in the garden, making sure we have a fair few layers on to keep warm!
