Kristina and I visited Kew again yesterday. It has been a constant source of changing wonders through the seasons so far this year. We managed to dodge the rain, but somehow the raindrops enhanced the autumnal feel, particularly the way they nestled on the autumn-flowering crocus.
They looked especially good against the background of dark, damp soil.
The colour was predominantly green around the gardens...
...with accents of brightly coloured berries on the hollies and sorbus'.
Now it really does feel like the season has changed. There is a definite chill in the air and I am wearing socks!
