The Gallery: (The garden in) Autumn

I noticed the other day that we seem to have blossom on our front garden. There are three bushes – I have no idea what they are – and they all have what appears to be blossom on them – there’s a red one, a white one and a pink one. Does blossom even exist in autumn? But if it’s not blossom, what is it? Either way, it’s very pretty.

And then I realised that, despite it being autumn and wet and miserable, and, despite half of it being over-run by ridiculous weeds, there are still some beautiful flowers in my garden. There’s also some lovely autumn colours in the form of red and orange berries. I love the way they grow along the wall.

These have been flowering for nearly six months now.

I don’t know what this is, but it’s very beautiful.

I can’t believe the wallflowers are flowering again already.

But my favourite beautiful thing in the garden, at any time of year? These little dudes.

    • You don’t need guinea pigs, you have so many other animals! I wish I had some idea what all my plants actually are!

  6. Okay I’m not sure how autumnal the guinea pigs are? Any excuse eh? Lovely photos, your garden is lovely

  7. Such a happy post of colour and sweetness. I love how The Gallery theme always helps us to take a closer look at our surroundings – and sometimes helps us see what’s right there, ‘in our own backyard’! In the busy lives we all lead and the ups and downs of the parenting roller-coaster, it is those moments – when we stop and appreciate the little things – that we feel the best. Thank you for your post. It was really delightful to click through and see your post.

    • Thank you! What a lovely thing to say! You’re right, I love joining in with The Gallery because it makes you think out of the box and look at things in a different light you might not otherwise have featured on your blog.

  11. Love the guinea pig photos 🙂 I use to have some growing up, they are great pets! I’m envious you have berries on your pyracantha, ours is still all leaves!

    • Thank you! I had no idea what that was, so that’s really good to know!
      We only bought the guinea pigs recently. I never had them as a child myself, but I think they’re great pets.

  12. You still have lots of lovely colour! I have no idea what most of the plants in my garden are called… we have a landscaper starting, so I’m hoping that he can start pointing things out to me 🙂

    • That sounds amazing! I would like a gardener to help us stay on top of the weeds! They don’t ever stop growing.

  13. Awww! Guinea piggies! We have some here too, perfect pint-sized lawnmowers aren’t they? I’m loving how much colour there still is at the moment, although some plants look a bit confused as to what time of the year it is to me!

    Thanks for joining in again xx

    • Thanks very much! I thought the plants were a bit confused too! The guinea pigs are just ace 🙂

  14. So much colour – the blossom is wegielia (I pronounce it why-g-lia -no idea if that’s correct or not!) and the berries look like pyracantha – they probably have very thorny stems so take care!

    • Thank you, that’s good to know! One day I will learn all of these names – and I’ll watch out for the thorns!
