Autumnal Hues on a Sunny Sunday Afternoon

After a dismal start to the day, with proper autumnal rain lashing at the windows, 
the sun appeared during the afternoon giving me time to potter around in the garden

Leaves have started to turn and drift down from the trees
but for now 

from Michaelmas daisies, through the leaves of blueberry shrubs and red salad-bowl lettuce,
 kaffir lilies and fuchsias, to ripening apples

the predominant colour in the garden ranges through red to purple
