I love autumn in my garden. Though many plants are preparing for dormancy, and most of the stronger summer colour is gone, there is something so restful and beautiful about the garden at this of the year. With temperatures becoming cooler we also tend to get some lovely crisp, sunny days which draw us outside and with a little thought we can create lovely spaces to enjoy even in the cooler months.
Personally, I love being out in the garden at this time of the year, and I often bring out blankets, storm lanterns and cushions to my patio to create a space which is beautiful, cosy and warm. I always think its the ideal time for bonfires which are a great way of celebrating the changing of the seasons as well as roasting marshmallows while wrapped in blankets. With a little bit of thought your outdoor space can be used almost in any season and there are a few tips that I think are great for making this happen.
Considering all these fiery colours in the garden, I love the idea of adding some cool accents to the Autumn scheme making for a wonderful contrast of hot and cold.
