October is almost here!

The golden light of September continues on as we move in to October and the garden is gradually moving towards its time of rest.
The colours are transitioning into warmer tones and the leaves are letting go from the branches. Many of the Japanese Maples are still holding their bright green colour, but this month will see these brights turn more subdued with yellows and oranges taking over.
I enjoyed my walk around the garden for this shoot as the morning light was filtering in through the leaves and creating some beautiful shadow patterns on the gravel pathways and the plants below the canopy. The shades of autumn colour are punctuated with bright greens and reds from some of the Acers that stubbornly hold on to their foliage from the summer months. I noticed the Azalea bushes bouncing sun rays from their dark green, shiny leaves reminding me of their colourful flowers earlier in the year.
I am transfixed by leaves and the shapes and colours as i wander around the garden and the light is magical as it comes through making everything glow.
It is amazing that we are now about to enter the month of October! I can’t quite believe that this will be our final month open for this season until March 1st next year!
Visiting this month? You can expect to see autumn colours, leaves dropping and a mixture of rain and golden sunshine
