Bog Garden in autumn

Ironically, in autumn, it is the Bog Garden that feels the warmest spot in the Garden! This small enclosure protected by the raised peninsula that projects into the Lake is usually cool and green, but now feels like a nest lined with a comforting ragbag of insulating textiles - the rich brown fronds of the imposing clump of royal fern, Osmunda regalis are layered with deep purple and teal of Hydrangea quercifolia 'Snowflake', the light mustard foliage of the Acer palmatum 'Sango kaku' backed up with the russet and copper feathery leaves on the side-by-side pair of a swamp cypress, Taxodium distichum and a dawn redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides.
