Welcome Autumn. Tuesday here saw the start of Autumn. Falling leaves,changing colours and chilly temperatures on their way.
There are so many wonderful changes in the garden.Leaves,seedpods,
berries, acorns and with all these wonderful changes to the eye there’s the changing
acoustics, the rustling leaves of falling freely, crunching and kicking of leaves
underfoot, changing melodies of Winter birds.
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
– Stanley Horowitz
This Autumn wreath was made with all the findings of this time of the year from the garden and we’ve just starting harvesting our corn crops. Hence these rustic looking corn flowers,made from corn husks, one hint on making these always remember to spray them with hair spray or fixing spray, otherwise beasties will eat them and the wreath won’t last for the following year. I love the natural colours of the corn flowers, however they can be spray painted also.
Because a garden mean constantly making choices,
it offers almost limitless possibilities for surprise and satisfaction.
