Happy Anniversary!

image

25 years ago today my hubby and I got married so it’s our silver wedding anniversary. I just have no idea where the last 25 years have gone! We shall be celebrating with family and friends in a few weeks time, during half term, but in the meantime here’s a collage of the cards and flowers we received.

Abstract Seeds

Not sure what kind of seeds these are but I love the abstract nature of them.

Last Rose

image

The final few roses are now blooming and I took the opportunity to capture a last photo or two before they finish for another year.

Nut Harvest

image

The last few cob nuts are still hanging on to the hazel trees and soon the nut harvest will be finished for another year. It’s been a bumper year for nuts and the dog has had his fill every day!

First Autumn Colours

image

The first leaves are beginning to change colour and autumn is truly on its way.  This is a Virginia Creeper and the leaves change to the most amazing shades of red and orange.

Crab Apple

image

The ornamental crab tree is covered in fruits and although they look very tempting, this fruit is not for eating.

Poker Face

image

A red hot poker just coming into bloom. In a day or so the bottom petals will be bright yellow and the top ones will change to orange. Such a striking flower!
