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’

  1. 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.
