As October draws to an end I am astonished to see so much colour in my garden. You do need to look for it amongst the death and decay, but fuchsias are still going strong, geraniums are flowering again and even roses are in bud.
So let’s have a wander:
The feature image is of my Chocolate Cosmos which is another plant that has flowered its socks off this year, though often obscured by the daylilies. I usually leave it in the ground and just pack some woollen pads over the top to protect it from the wet. This year I might try some form of a cloche.
This week marks the first with our new expert host, Jim of Garden Ruminations. As always, if you want a peek over other people’s garden walls then please pop over to his site where you find links to many more wonderful garden enthusiasts from all over the world. See here for the participant’s guide.
Lots of colour still in your garden. I really like the Rozanne/Nigella combo. I’m back in Cornwall next weekend.
You do have a wonderful selection of colourful plants. They almost herald winter with a sense of hope.
There won’t be many survivors soon. Though often the Osteospermums will flower through winter.
