The temperatures have gone down a bit this week (although surprisingly, have gone up a bit this weekend) and the autumn colours are starting to glow. However, there are still some plants bravely hanging on. Above is the 'old velvet' colours of the hydrangea flowers.
The standard cherry Kojo-no-mai is showing fiery shades...
...as are the blueberries.
Salvia Nachtvlinder is still in bloom, with its deep purple flowers.
Rose Kew Gardens is also still putting out the odd flower.
Fuchsia Thamar is the only fuchsia I have now - the others got rust and I got rid of them.
Liriope Muscari is such a reliable plant for me. I really need to divide the poor thing and give it a bit more space.
Hydrangeas are still flowering at the bottom end of the garden.
I like the mix of the bright white flower against the earlier flowers which have turned green
The Magnolia is now losing its leaves - and that is a proper November sky.
There are still some autumn fruiting raspberries ( I ate this one straight after taking this photo).
Lysimachia Clethroides in the front, starting to go yellow, with the cherry behind. I need to start on the pot insulation I think. We have had one frost so far and there will certainly be more to come.
