It was a train that was NOT going to be stopped ... I was possessed by bulb-mania.
346 bulbs in nooks and crannies all over the back garden and ally way ... fingers crossed.
Our weather has been astoundingly warm and sunny ... almost eerie !
During that time I was working in a golden atmosphere provided by our Pacific Sunset Maple.
It had gotten over much of that terrible "black tar spot" that made it look like it had black measles.
At different times of the day but especially late afternoon ... it cast such a warm golden glow the atmosphere was phenomenal .. beyond description of how it made me feel .. almost like a kid again with wonderful memories of Autumn.
It has to bloom and show off it's contribution to the colour scheme.
So I have to be realistic and brace myself for the coming winter and hope it doesn't drive me too mad?
