Greenwich Park in Autumn

I love wandering in Greenwich Park in the evenings and at the moment the autumn colours are wonderful, although winter seems just round the corner. The ring-necked parakeets and the squirrel are frenetically busy, and very noisy, gathering up the chestnuts.

Gone

How did I miss them? The Tulip Tree and the paeonies have come and gone in Greenwich Park. But life goes on, relentlessly: the mulberries are ripening, there are a few daylilies still flowering, Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ is grand, and Cleopatra is beautiful in the rose garden.
