We've had high winds here for the last couple of days and it has been wreaking havoc in the garden, especially among the tallest plants. It got so bad today that I thought it best to conduct a rescue operation and just pick anything that seemed to be in danger. The result is this lovely autumnal bunch of flowers, berries and foliage from the garden.
The rowan trees and hypericum 'Magical Red Flame' provided the berries. Our two rowan trees have a heavy crop of berries this year. According to folklore if the rowan bears a heavy load of fruit then it is going to be a mild winter with little snow.
And the apples? They are our entire harvest, six in total, this year!
