There is still plenty of autumn colour around Hobart and in my garden and I gathered some up to design new dresses for the Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe®. The maple tree by one of the front gates is particularly spectacular and has grown to have a lovely arching shape over the steps, hiding a glimpse of the house when you first enter the gate until you reach the curve of the path.
I’ve written before about my half circle path with a gate at each end – this gate (we call it the top gate!) is my favourite to go in and out of in Autumn because of the maple and the other (the bottom gate!) is my favourite in Spring when the rose that twists through the patchwork hedge sends sprays of pink blooms over head.
