Waiting for an Indian Summer.

Aster Twilight and Headgardener's Carex
Its hard to believe the summer is at an end. Its also hard not to feel cheated by the weather this summer but there's no point complaining. There is still a glimmer of hope for an Indian summer but already the leaves are turning - the liquidamber is showing lots of colour as are the beech trees across the road and there are already lots of bright red rosehips around, but its a little soon for me really. I've been away from home for the last 3 weeks and wasn't expecting to come home to autumn!
One thing I was delighted to see was the Aster 'Twilight' which is appropriately named for this time of year in the garden. I planted it with the brown grass I got from Headgardener at Belvedere, and I like the combination. I have crocosmia Lucifer nearby and the colour is fantastic.
