Late autumn bloom – amidst the leaves… see more.

Was in the walled pear garden at Cannon Hall farm…2 weeks ago…and there must have been 50 Red admiral butterflies …a hatching…on one of the espalier grown pear trees..
A wonderful sight…but they should be tucked up in chrysalis until the spring….
The pear garden has a collection of old varieties of pears..trees, cordons, espalier…and the harvest day..late Sept is well worth visiting…some of the old varieties…far more tasty than the modern ones…

I just love walled gardens… Especially walled vegetable or fruit gardens – and even more so when they have been inch-perfect trained against old brick walls… Very late for butterflies? We did have some this summer, but not many – and mainly cabbage whites.
