STILL FLOWERING TODAY

It is November and there are still flowers in the garden, even after a few night frosts. But most of the garden looks tatty. It is Autumn ofcourse !

A PRETTY LITTLE FUCHSIA
ROSA GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR
UNBELIEVABLE BUT TRUE; A PRIMULA THAT NORMALLY BLOOMS IN EARLY SPRING
JAPANESE ANEMONE
YELLOW BEGONIA
A BIG FUCHSIA magellanica BUSH
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST ; THE BUD OF A BIG SUNFLOWER

At the moment we have beautiful sunny soft days and frosty nights. As soon as the sun goes down it is cold. We are in a second full lockdown at the moment.

I hope you are all well and happy. Keep safe.

WHAT IS STILL BLOOMING IN MY GARDEN TODAY

It definitely is Autumn now, cos of the drought it is early this year. But there still is a lot in bloom right now although you can see the flowers are a bit tired and the leafs are getting brown and yellow here and there. On top of it they had to go without my tlc while I was on holiday in France.

IT’S SEDUM SPECABILE TIME NOW AND I HAVE LOTS OF THEM


FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA BLOOMS FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS

PASSIFLORA CAERULEA
THE ASTERS ARE JUST BEGINNING TO BLOOM
DAHLIA WILL BLOOM TILL THE FROSTS COME
BEGONIA’S STILL DOING REALLY WELL
TAGETES (marigolds)
ROSA GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR IS STILL GETTING NEW BUDS AND ALL

MY FUCHSIA’S IN POTS ARE ALL STILL IN BLOOM
ROSA SEAGULL

On the other hand some plants look tatty, like the ferns, the Amelanchier tree(shadbush or june berry), the lavenders…. But hey, I am not complaining !

I hope you are all well and happy, wherever you are.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

My Guirlande D’amour rose is in bloom and my whole garden smells of roses at the moment. Guirlande D’amour is a rambler rose, half double, snow white and has a lovely delicate smell. I have this rose in my garden for about 20 years now and she is beautifull when in bloom. I give it a cut in Autumn, just the longest branches and then in Spring it gets a good cut and a bit of dried cow manure, thats it. It keeps blooming till the frosts come, not as much as it blooms in June though.

MY GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR 2 WEEKS AGO
MY GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR TODAY
GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR TODAY, RESTING ON A WOODEN BOW

You can’t see anything of the wooden bow as it is completely covered by the rose. This rose is also the favorite place for birds to make their nest in and for the bees of course, they just love it. And so do I.

Have a great day and thanks for your visit.

IT LOOKS PROMISING

The roses in my garden have hundreds of buds that will soon open up and change my garden in a lovely smelling place. I can hardly wait !!
