This week has seen some amazing changes in the garden; with the Japanese Maples now turning their leaves to their stunning autumn colours. Some are reacting faster than others of course, but the reaction can be seen throughout the garden.
It has been unbelievably windy this week! The poor gardeners have been fighting a tough battle trying to keep the garden tidy as leaves have been falling in huge amounts with every gust of wind! Autumn is always a demanding time of year due to the leaf fall of this season, but the gale force winds have made this more challenging this week. I personally love visiting the garden at this time of year and the leaves falling in the breeze adds something magical for me when i spend time around the trees.
Autumn is a very special time of year in the garden; as change is everywhere present with leaves falling, colours turning and trees beginning to show off their branches and their architecture again. The powerful winds managed to reach us even though we are sheltered at the bottom of the Lanherne vale, but we have managed to hold on to lots of our beautiful leaves luckily!
We have just 11 days left of our 2017 season – October 31st 2017 is our last day open this year!
Please enjoy looking at the photographs i shot this week in the garden –
