Mad about them or just mad ?

 I don't usually take pictures from the front garden because I am too busy weeding the stones or doing general tidy up, so I was glad to get this as a record of how the plants are doing this time of year. There are nine hydrangea in the raised bed here believe it or not (you can't see them all in this picture).. four BoBo which I think might be a little too crowded, that is on my list for next year

This is Pinky Winky ... but it looks like Strawberry Vanilla the way it's colouring advances. PW is also one of my oldest hydrangea.
Two Phantom hydrangea against the ally wall has very large flower heads and is just changing colour now.
I have two Berry White against the fence in the back garden.
Berry White developed flower heads over a foot long ! The back lighting made this one gorgeous.
Little Lamb was my first hydrangea and made me a total fan of the paniculated form.

Filtered light makes the hydrangea petals shine, I love how they look !
A cute mushroom is always something that makes me smile so it had to be photographed !
Evidence that the smaller birds in the garden are snacking on the seeds left by the coneflowers. I love to see that they are enjoying themselves like that !
I couldn't ignore how amazing the fluffy clematis seed heads get, but also with almost the legs of a spider waiting for it's dinner to pass by ?
I think most gardeners have some type of sedum that begins to blush for Autumn ?
Autumn is coming ... and I have so much work to do !
