When walking round the garden to take November’s photos for Bloom Day, I found that most of the flowers were over and done with, not many left at all. I’ve been concentrating so much on foliage for the past few weeks, that I hadn’t noticed the decline in the flowers in the garden, I really had to search some of them out.
The winter jasmine by the front door opens more flowers every day and is just getting into its stride.
Very near the jasmine is one of my mahonias, M. Charity.
My other M Charity is by the dead oak in the centre of the garden.
A seedling Michaelmas Daisy which is growing in the gravel of the rose garden, must move it to better soil.
Most of my roses have been cut back, but a few flowers remain on ones that are still waiting.
The remaining ones aren’t looking very happy though, maybe they will be happier when cut back.
R. Bonica is as tough as old boots, she is looking fine, very bright and perky.
Fuchsia Delta Sarah is just about hanging on, I’m sure it will stop flowering soon.
In the woodland, Liriope Muscari is eventually flowering, it always seems so late to me, I quite often forget all about it.
and last but not forgotten, is my variegated Yucca. The individual blooms aren’t looking quite as good as earlier in the week, but good enough for Bloom Day.
That is my reduced selection for this month’s Bloom Day, not many at all I’m afraid.
Thanks go as usual to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this meme each month, do pay her a visit to see flowers blooming all over the world.
