october garden

by greenrabbitdesigns


Hi everyone, I thought it was time I popped in here after my holiday. I do have some holiday pics to share with you but I really haven’t had time to sort through them yet, life is a little busy at the moment. We had a wonderful time in the beautiful Riviera sunshine and I have a couple of places that we visited that I definitely want to record on my blog, so soon!!

In the meantime, as today is the beginning of October, I took a little walk around the garden with my camera. The garden does need a little attention and I need to get my springtime bulbs planted but it is still looking quite summery out there.

You would be forgiven for thinking the above photo was actually taken on the shores of the Mediterranean looking at the bright blue sky but no it was definitely taken in my garden this afternoon.







According to the Green Rabbit calender we have now moved into autumn but apart from a few fallen leaves it really did feel like it was still summer outside today…..but that’s ok with me! 😉

Back soon with some tales from France!

You went to France AGAIN? Spoiled girl 🙂 Happy for you!!!!I was wondering why it was so quiet here at Green Rabbit! Looking forward to photos. Lovely garden pics. We’ve been having fabulous sunny afternoons now although it takes a while for the morning mist to melt off. xo K

I keep telling myself it is still late summer though I actually love autumn
Seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness
Close bosom friend of the retiring sun

Beautiful flowers Vivienne! So nice to see summer last so long, I’m with you, hope it continues as long as possible! I do like Autumn but Autumn means winter’s on the way. Can’t wait to hear about France, xoRobin

Your garden is looking fabulous, And long may the sun keep shining on it … don’t you just love the quality of the light in October.

Hello dear Vivienne,

It looks so wonderfully summery at these images still, I cannot believe it is autumn according your calendar too, enjoy these days still!

Happy October my friend!


Stephanie October 5, 2014 - 2:07 pm

I agree with Annie above; the quality of the early autumnal sunshine is a wonderful consolation prize for summer’s departure. There’s so much colour in your garden Vivienne. It must give you great cheer now that you have returned home from France. xx

Your nasturtiums look beautiful! Bringing back a few memories. 🙂

Welcome back Vivienne, your plants are still looking lovely. I hope autumn lasts a good few weeks before we head into winter 🙁 x

Welcome back from warm and sunny France Vivienne, can’t wait to see more photos of your holidays having seen your Renoir post, but this post is just as summer like as you still have so many summer flowers blooming. It has finally turned from the glorious Indian summer to autumn over the weekend, and I think it has where you are too.Never mind, we had a good summer!

I’m behind with reading again! I hope you are still holding on to some of the nice weather V, I’m amazed at the cosmos, marigolds and cornflower still going in my garden, but I know one hard frost and they’ll be gone. What a lovely summer and autumn we’ve had! Bxx
