Autumn in the garden centre

Morning all!

Last Friday I was lucky enough to go out and about for the afternoon with my friend Sue from @home.  We had a lovely hot chocolate in a local cafe and visited some local gift shops.  I cant show what I bought as they are destined for pressies...

But we then visited our local garden centre.  This was the sign that greeted us on our way in

These plants were charming in their autumn colours

Reminded me of the colours Im using for my crochet blanket

These friendly fellows were also there to great us

This chap is obviously a hit with the birds ;)

These fantastic leaves were attached to all the displays - I wish they had been on sale - three together would have made a wonderful table runner as they were massive

All in all a most enjoyable afternoon!  Thanks Sue for being such great company.



  1. Good morning Helen, what a fantastic time we had out together :) you took some lovely photographs too.... those large leaves were amazing... You really must become a lady of leisure, it suits you so much, we'd have a fantastic time ;)
