preserving autumn

The last minute risky decision to sow my final few rosella seeds in the Summer garden has proved most fruitful this Autumn...
by way of blossom, fruit and jam for our chilly morning toast.
And even though the Autumn shade is encroaching on the garden... a little more than my green fingers would like... my bushes are continuing on with perfect bleeding throated blooms and fleshy finger staining calyxes.
There will be more peeling to be done on the deck... stirring over the stove and steaming thick red liquid locked in glass jars to make that sweet popping sound of a successfully preserved Autumn.

Gorgeous! I think I've mentioned this before, but I'm envious of the plants you get to grow. That one in particular is simply beautiful.
