Although my preferred seasons are Spring and Summer, the onset of Autumn has its attractions too. For the past couple of weeks, the garden has been filled with Red Admiral butterflies, honey bees and the odd wasp, all enjoying the flowers from the Ivy (Hedera Helix), which grows up, along and over the white-washed, stone, garden wall.
In contrast with the odd, end of the summer, flowering from other plants, the ivy wall is alive with a buzzing and fluttering and has decided to flower in sections and in abundance. Added to this, as I walk down the garden path with an excited cat at my heels (because we're heading for the studio), there is a scent of Jasmine in the air.
