Autumn Colour

In the garden, the soft pinks, purples and blues of summer are slowing giving way to the strong reds, yellows and oranges of autumn. Yesterday evening, I picked these beautiful sunflowers from our allotment.
We also harvested our first pumpkin of the season. This one will become a Jack O'Lantern for Halloween.

The supermarkets have already started to stock items for Halloween. I couldn't resist this pumpkin cake mould and the bats will be used to decorate our front porch to greet the Trick or Treaters.

There have been some new additions to the garden as well ...

I have planted two miniature cyclamens next to the stone bench,

this cast iron bird feeder is sitting in a flowerbed

and these cane toppers are decorating another border.

I wonder how long it will take the cats to notice these birds in the garden?!
