Evening light

The last few evenings have been quite beautiful here in Sheffield; summer at the edge of the Peak District. I've found the way the evening sun lit up some of my plants to have been quite breathtaking. I'm not sure the photographs quite capture the beauty, but I hope you can see through my amateur lens and enjoy some of the colours as I have.

Deschampsia cespitosa 'Goldtau' and Acer palmatum 'Sango-kaku'

Acer palmatum 'Sango-kaku'

Acer palmatum 'Sango-kaku'. I love the colour of the new stems.

Lychnis viscaria subsp. atropurpurea

Clematis x triternata 'Rubromarginata'

Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora 'Irish Dawn'

Muted colours of the final light.

Centaurea cyanus

New leaf of Osmunda regalis 'Purpurascens'. The stems similar to the Acer.

Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer'


  1. Those first photos look quite autumnal.

    1. That's true, though it's their normal colours. The Acer is even more brilliant in Autumn!

  2. Lovely! You have a profusion of flowers, given it's meant to be the lull before the autumnal perennials all come out.

    I love the fact that the acer and the deschampsia look like they could be tiny, or huge and at a distance - the proportions are perfect together.

    1. As I looked more closely, I realised I had more colour than I thought. I had also thought I should move the Acer or Deschampsia, but yeh, they don't look half bad together :)

  3. Stunning hues of colour in the garden and what a stunning Acer!

  4. These are absolutley lovely! Thank you for sharing.
