October gives us seed-heads

September’s colourful borders give way to seed heads and dying foliage in silvery greys and browns often silhouetted in the misty late autumn light.

“All the flowers of all the tomorrows
are in the seeds of today”

~an Indian proverb

So what do you like best in October?

        • That’s right, Iris foetidissima, but I don’t recall the flowers – I know they are not the same as the ones we see in a garden, but I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of one in flower.

      • Once we reach February I can see the end of winter, days are longer and I can tolerate it, and things like witch hazel help me along the way! I remember the one year being able to smell it way before I saw it, in fact it may have been the first time I’d ever seen it.
        I’m looking forward to strolling around a garden with you and really hope that next year is the one your Cornwall dream comes true x:-)x

  1. I love your photos Jude…have you ever thought of making a seasonal calendar with them and selling them? I bet you would have a great response. I would buy one for sure. Just saying 🙂 xx

    • because they are? Actually I think you just need to look for texture and shape at this time of year. Catching the light works well too. Thank you Sue 🙂
