Six on Saturday – 2nd October

Not quite sure what happened to September, it seemed to go in a blink of an eye. It was a pretty mild month for us but things have definitely got a bit chiller in the last week. And the nights are really drawing in. The sunshine and heavy showers of the last couple of days have resulted in some beautiful rainbows though.

The haws are showing great colour. Here an American hawthorn, who’s berries are not as plentifully this year as our native hawthorn trees.

The poly tunnel plastic is showing its age. We did some repairs last year but this winter we are going to have to go for a new cover. The plastic is probably about 14 years and they say 10 is a good age, so I can’t really complain.

This sweet chestnut trees is about 10 years old and this is the first year it has fruit – there are only about half a dozen fruits.

This aster seems to have flowered late but is adding some well needed colour now.

Similarly, I had nearly given up hope that this sunflower would open but it had this morning, adding it’s own bit of sunshine.

Many thanks to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.

    The haw is glowingly vibrant. I wonder if you have asters going everywhere as mine did. I ended up pulling them out because they were taking over the garden and itโ€™s pretty warm here when they flower. I donโ€™t get beautiful colours like yours, theyโ€™re always a bit washed out.

    You’ve captured that rainbow brilliantly! Beautiful. I agree, I’m not quite sure where September went, and here we are rolling through the first week of October. I’m glad we’ve also had a mild start to the fall. The flowers always look lovely with a blue sky backdrop, as you’ve shown so well here! ๐Ÿ™‚
