How Does Your Garden Grow - Autumn Joy


A cold wind is blowing and I shiver as I stand at my back door sipping my hot, morning coffee. A coffee I know I shouldn't be drinking for health reasons, but I am struggling to give up my guilty indulgence, especially as we hit a chilly spell.

I wander down to the bottom of the garden and admire the Sedum's. They are in their prime at this time of year as they pop pink prettiness in a garden full of fallen brown rusty leaves. I decide that I will plant more of these beauties, maybe out the front, up against the picket fence or possibly surrounding Bertha, the caravan. I think Bertha would like them. They will sit perfectly at her feet and as pink is her favourite colour, I'm sure it will make her very happy and also her passer by's, as they often give her a sidewards glance, a nod and a nostalgic smile. Oh yes, they will make Bertha very happy indeed.

  2. So many lovely deep colours about at the moment but the reds have to be my favourites. Super chilly here too, at first I thought it was just me but it seems that everyone is cold this morning. Any excuse to fire up the woodburner I say. I too have a large cup of coffee here which I shouldn't really drink - hampers my iron tablet intake, but sometimes you just need a warm cup of hug x

    Thanks for sharing and joining in, and may I say Bertha is looking mighty fine still x

  4. I could always find a reason for a good cup of coffee, and cooler weather is a great reason. Ohhh, and I love Bertha and the pink!

  5. Sedum is wonderful isn't it. We have some too but yours is far prettier. I'm sure Bertha would love some - it would match her curtains. Wonderful words as always :)

  6. I think Bertha must be a very happy caravan indeed. I hope I'm surrounded by flowers as I get older.

    1. It will be Katie, I just need to stop for a while while I have an adrenaline test, coffee effects the result. Its not easy though, plus doc has said I should stick to no more than 2 a day in future. 2 Cups is just torture, lol! x

  9. I'm not certain I really like sedums, but they provide colour at this time of the year. Yours, however are far prettier than mine. They match Bertha's curtains perfectly.
