It is that time of the year again! Autumn – when gigantic spiders make their way into the house and make webs in every available nook and cranny! And this one below (garden cross spider) made a huge web (almost a metre in diameter) between my beans and tomato plants.. Shudder!!!
Month: September 2014
There is this rose bush in my garden which struggles to survive every year regardless of what I try to do make it feel happy. But year on year it produces one or two of these really vibrant flowers in autumn! Just one of two roses sadly before the winter frosts kick in.

Cosmos – on blue
This year I grew cosmos plants for the first time (from seed that too).. and they’ve now grown to a height of about 2 metres!! Lovely pink flowers held up on thin stalks. The height of these flowers means that they’ve opened themselves up to being photographed from underneath against the backdrop of the blue sky (as below).
