Autumn colours

While I was watering the seedlings in my cold frame (the foxgloves look AWESOME, the lupins dreadful), I stopped to admire the acers and heucheras in the lower bed.

This looks its best in Autumn

One of my acers has lost all its leaves already but this one is really looking superb, particularly against all the yellow leaves that have fallen from the tree next door.

A few weeks ago, I planted a few foxglove seedlings in this bed as I’d run out of room in my cold frame and quite a few of them are still going well.  I hope that they will flower next year – foxgloves in this bed could look very beautiful.
