A crown of wind-flowers

Twist me a crown of wind-flowers; 
That I may fly away ...Christina Georgina Rossetti

My anemones have never been so lovely as this autumn. They baked through summer and I moved them to a more shady spot and gave them a bit of extra water. There were clouds of them! And a little special double white one I had thought lost was best of all.

Delicious autumn

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." ~ George Eliot

Honour Avenue, Macedon Victoria.

Now is the time to pack some hot drinks and a basket and take in all the sights of our lovely hills and mountain places.

Enjoying the last of the Salvia 'Black and Blue'
Bee enjoying Salvia Black and Blue
I had a very mixed flowering of salvias this year. The Salvia gesneriiflora 'Tequila' didn't do well at all but others especially in the last month have bloomed like mad.
