…well, maybe not of the day but rather of the garden year that is slowly coming to an end. Early this morning the world was shrouded in mist, and as I wandered around outside I couldn’t help but notice the magic of death and decay. Grasses, seedheads, dying perennials turning into a beautiful late autumn-winter-monochrome still brightened by the burning leaves of Parrotia and other autumn stars. For my vase I’ve picked Plectranthus, Chrysanthemum, the red stems of Euphorbia griffithii and hips of Rosa „Scharlachglut“ (syn. Scarlet Glow). As always don’t forget to visit the blog of our charming hostess Cathy, the creator of the Monday vase, to see what others have picked for their vases today. Wishing you all a great week 🙂

Land of Heart’s Desire Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood, But joy is wisdom, time an endless song.

William Butler Yeats

  1. Wunderschön … dem Verfall wohnt ein besonderer Zauber inne. Vielen Dank für diesen poetischen Einblick in deinen spätherbstlichen Garten. Herzlichen Dank auch für deine Mail, Antwort kommt bald.
    Liebe Grüße und eine schöne, kreative Woche, Jana

  2. Lovely seasonal pictures there Annette, and your little arrangement is posing patiently. Did you bring it in? My arrangement with agapanthus last week sent outside due to its pollen is still holding its own.

  3. Yes, such glowing colours in your garden and your vase – we can always find something to bring joy from our gardens, can’t we? Wishing you and Monsieur many joyful days in your autumn and winter garden

    1. it’s always such fun to prepare the IAVOAM posts, Cathy, I think they bring happiness to many as it helps us to find and appreciate beauty and leave the world behind for a while x

  4. Fabulous end of season shots. It just shows your garden is beautiful all year round. I ordered a rose ‚Scharlachglut‘ last week, I love it in sumer and autumn. Herzliche Grüsse aus Suffolk.

    1. The colours are amazing this year so it’s easy to love it right now but I must admit, I love it all year round, possible a tiny bit less in August when it looks so parched. The hips of Scharlachgut last for ages x

    1. That’s what life is all about appreciating every little thing and the fact that we’re around at all. So much beauty goes unnoticed as people chase after superficial ideals and things. Thanks very much for your appreciation, Susie 🙂
