Looks like the last days of autumn as all the leaves are nearly off the trees. So there is a LOT of leaf clearing work to do. But the colours are superb and there are still a few flowers left!

View over the left hand slope towards the water meadows
Wonderful colours
You really get a sense of the angle of slope in the garden from this picture
The steps at the bottom of the garden (numbers 90-98?) in need of a sweep (or blow!)
The deer still seem quite happy. Wish there were all as benign as these two!
Still some flowers out
Last month we planted the bed of new rhododendrons and azaleas. About 20. The aim is that they all join together into bank of glorious colour. If you keep checking into the website, maybe you might even see that happen - in about 10 years I would guess!
