Mum’s beautiful garden is slowly being “put to bed” for the winter. It is work-in-progress.
The Catalpa tree has almost lost its leaves and is now left with just the lonely swinging beans pods.
The enormous leaves will all be swept up once the last leaf has fallen.
Obviously, little Teddy followed me around while I took my photos. He loves the leaves and runs up and down the garden to shout at potential invaders.
And here is the potential invader – aka, Mr Foxy. I left the top of an eggbox-ful of leftover food beyond the garden gate. The food is not suitable for man nor dog and Mr F iss the end of this house’s food chain as Mum can’t have a compost heap because of rats. We think it is a young male fox who is looking very good. I have a secret hankering to tame him down in the next few days and bring him home to Shetland, which obviously I won’t, can’t and would never do but I do ❤️ foxes.
Anywho, here are some photos of the rest of Mum’s beautiful garden.
It may be Autumn and everything may be dying back, but there is so much beauty and colour around.
And here’s Teddy. Enchantment by any other name.
