The autumn garden

We've been spending so much time in the garden these past few weeks, what with the warmth, the sunshine, and the new treehouse. This garden is at its very best in May and June, when the roses bloom madly and everything is bursting into life.

Now, we're at the tail end and there aren't many plants at their best (not in these beds, anyway). The sedum is bright and the virginia creeper at the end of the garden is all vibrant reds and golds. And these rosebuds - in October? A sweet surprise. I even managed a little rustic jug of flowers for the kitchen table: rosemary, lavender, sedum, and two types of rose.

Linking up with Mammasaurus and her 'How does your garden grow?' feature.
