The birds and wildlife in my garden have rather dominated my posts recently. However today it is time once again to post on what is in flower in my garden at the moment. Well, I have to say that many of the same flowers of the last few months are still in flower albeit in fewer numbers. It was getting dark as I took my photos today so the flash was used in them all. I thought it would make a change. To see more flowering plants in other gardens go to May Dreams Gardens and browse the gardens in the comments of Carol’s November post .
Photos above from top: Thistle flowers of Cirsium, coral trumpets of Penstemon, Sea Holly, pink Asters, Verbena Bonariensis, orange Osteospermum, pink crane’s bill geranium and white Borage.
Finally, I have to point out here that although the above plants are still in flower they really are in very small numbers now. They appear as little dots of colour through a tapestry of foliage. I should also add that my Japanese Anemones, Nepata, Polygala and Calendula still have a few flowers left too. I enjoy my foliage plants at this time of year and as more plants die down for winter I am able to see the structural plants of my garden once again. Ah yes, and perhaps it is time to start thinking about next year’s garden.
The photos above were taken in my garden on November15th 2007.
