Although Autumn is in many ways a sad season - seeing the final moments of many short-lived plants, and the annual shedding of the leaves of many longer-lived ones - it is also a time of glorious colour, as the predominant greens of Summer begin to give way to reds, yellows and browns. My posts today and tomorrow are a celebration of this time of year - taking a close look at some of the stems, leaves and berries of some of the plants in my garden.
