There’s something very special about a garden in October. The ever-present glisten of moisture and early afternoon gloom sometimes work with any remaining colour, collaborating to create something both eerie and spectacular, like fireworks against a dark sky. Add to this the heady scent of damp leaves and bonfires, perhaps a cup of tea to warm cold hands and the chance to have the garden almost completely to yourself and it can be a match for any summer’s day.
These shots were taken on such a day in October at West Green Garden in Hampshire, UK; one of the most all-year magnificent gardens that I know.
