There aren’t many flowers still blooming in the garden, a couple of frosts have seen to that, but there a few stalwarts still hanging on in there.
Most of the roses have finished flowering, but Bonica keeps going.
The odd new flower keep surprising me on the hydrangeas.
Heuchera Rio is still flowering, putting up new flowers in spite of the colder weather.
My neglected Clematis Rouge Cardinal is still flowering away, it was determined to stay alive.
Fuchsia Whiteknights Blush is still flowering away.
And Fuchsia Delta Sarah is still putting out new flowers.
Erigeron karvinskianus has almost finished flowering but not quite yet.
Penstemon Snowsrorm had flowered for a good 6 months, fantastic plant.
Fuchsia magellanica is another plant that has flowered for about 6 months, such good value.
There are still quite a few Cyclamen hederifolium flowering in the woodland.
At last, Liriope muscari is flowering, it seems to be late this year.
A couple of weeks ago Jasminum nudiflorum started flowering, this should be with us for a while now.
Mahonia Charity by the front drive has just started to open it’s flower buds, these flowers will be with us for a while, they don’t mind the frost.
Not quite open, but another plant that will flower on and off all winter is Viburnum Bodnantense Dawn.
Not flowers, I know, but the seeds of Iris foetedissima are much brighter than the rather dull flowers earlier in the year.
I keep looking at the Quince by the back door, the buds have formed, but none are showing any colour yet. Once it starts flowering it will be with us until April. Also… sh…….I have some snowdrops pushing up, soon it will be that time of year again!
The winter flowers overlap with the last of the summer and autumn flowers, so we are never completely without some colour in the garden, all are welcome, especially in the dark dreary winter months.
Thanks must go to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this monthly meme, do pay her a visit to see flowers from around the world.
