Indian Summer

This is Mausi's favourite time of the year: Indian summer or "Altweibersommer" as we say in Germany. The sun has lost its summer glare but it is still warm enough outside to feel comfortable. Mausi has spent a lovely day out in the open today clearing out one of the flower beds which will be replanted next spring.

All flowers seem to be determined to show their best colour for the last time this year before going into hibernation.














Mausi's sweet peas.












A Gertrude Jekyll Rose which gives off a lovely lemon like scent.










And Mausi's faithful garden friend wandering how summer could have passed so quickly this year.

  1. The sweetpeas made me smile. As did the little frog.
