Lynton and Lynmouth - autumn colours
We chose late November to visit one of our favourite locations, Lynton and Lynmouth, to see the beautiful autumn colours. As we arrived and parked up at Lynton, the rain started! To allow the rain to pass, a "full English" at the cafe "Charlie Friday's" was a great start.
So leaving the cafe, we headed out towards the coast path in the direction of Valley of the Rocks. There are two paths, my favourite being the upper path which is more grassy and natural - the lower pathway is tarmacked with easy access but and the views are equally beautiful. The path hugs the coastline and with each twist and turn you are treated to views that keep beckoning you to walk further.

Original Watercolour on paper
Well it's a hot day today, probably the warmest of the year so far and I'm sure the garden will love it as much as we do! I have gradually added to the plants in pots in our garden this year and I've been looking for really pretty flowering plants such as sweet peas and clematis.
The clematis that I have chosen is called "Sarah Elizabeth" and has beautiful pink flowers. The painting is inspired by, but a different colour to my plant and I think I will have to paint another when the flowers appear.
Although putting the plants in pots is a little more high maintenance than planting them in the ground, I have the luxury of moving them around and placing them where they like to be in the sun/shade.
I'll try and share pics when the blooms appear and hopefully I'll be inspired to paint more watercolours of this very pretty subject.
