I love gardens in Autumn after rain. There’s something about the smell of wet earth and decay that is unique to this season. Colours are more vibrant, washed clean, and overblown late summer flowers droop under the weight of droplets. I think of the Autumn garden as rather like a dowager fallen on hard times, still making a show of things but a little shabby at the edges.
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
– Stanley Horowitz
Love that “shabby at the edges” description… know that feeling only too well! 😀
Beautiful! The golden colours and that vibrant green – so pretty. Totally drawn into this shot too. Fab work 🙂
Me, too! Clean and crisp after a rain.
I love the natural brightness of this photo!
