Halfway through November and it is very clear that we don’t have as many flowers this month, I think the flowers have decided that winter will soon be with us. We have had a very mild November so far, with just one cold day last week. The wind is from the south west bringing warm air up from the south Atlantic, this is confusing us as well as the plants! However, wandering round the garden I can find a few spots of colour.
Most of the roses still have flowers blooming.
Bonica starts flowering in June and hasn’t stopped since, I will cut her back soon to give her a rest, otherwise I think she would carry on all through the winter.
Evelyn still has her amazing perfume, so it’s worth going for a wander just to bury your nose amongst all those lovely petals!
The Hydrangea under the kitchen window is still putting out lots of new blooms, most of the other hydrangeas are now fading or even turning brown, but this one keeps flowering.
Hardy Fuchsias are still flowering, they have done really well this summer.
This ubiquitous campanula never seems to stop flowering, yes, this one is underneath Acer Osakazuki.
The winter jasmine by the front door has started flowering, and we will have plenty of bright yellow flowers over the next few months.
The berries on this iris shine out in the woodland, making a lovely splash of colour.
Now I know why we have so many Yew seedlings in the garden, I have never seen so many berries on the tree in the corner of the back garden before, they look so lovely, almost like a Christmas tree with it’s decorations.
Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this meme on the 15th of every month, do pay her a visit to see other flowers in November.
