Cedric


It was a bit chilly in the garden this morning, so I quickly knit a little scarf and hat so Cedric wouldn't catch a chill! The garden is looking a little sad, everything is slowly going to sleep, there are only a few flowers left to take pictures of. I am not sure what this lovely pink plant is, I do know it is a bulb of some sort, it is usually one of the last things to bloom, and then only for a really short while.
. My little Japanese Maple is starting to turn it's beautiful colors once again... ...and so is the grapevine.Not so long ago this little support grew a wonderful crop of sweet peas, now all it seems to grow are spider webs!
Now that I think about it my little garden deserves a rest, it has fed us well and given us some lovely flowers, as well as some lovely places to sit awhile. Before I know it everything will be starting all over again.

Have a lovely Wednesday!

He looks nice and cosy in his hatr & scarf - I like the way you have made his arms :o) It is a shame when you know that winter is on the way - I am just looking forward to seeing all the little robins with their redbreasts against the snow (well if we get any!)

I love your Christmas animals - how festive. I wish I could get into the Christmas mode but it is still 85 degrees here - hardly Christmas spirit weather. I envy your beautiful autumn weather!

Cedric looks warm and cozy and ready for winter! Your garden is still beautiful in its fall colors...I love how you describe it going to sleep after serving you well!

Cedric's a very cute little chap. You must be very happy with him. I like the spider webs on the sweet pea trellis...but that might just be me! Our garden is just starting to bloom. I even took a leaf out of your springtime posts and have put a few photos on frazzy dazzles - Jen

Clever little spiders to leave those webs on your plant support, they look really effective. Your pink flower bulb is a nerine, I have one in the garden too. x
