You are so lucky to have flowers this late on in the year Dottydaisy. We have a lot of evergreens with beautiful berries, but apart from a few sad marigolds, pink geraniums and cyclamen of course the season is finished here.

Sticki and Tt -
10 is an Astrantia,
6 is an Alstromeria (I don't know its name, though!) and 15 looks like a Skimmia to me.

Is that right, Dd? Lovely to have flowers out in November, isn't it. :-)

19 Nov, 2010

What beautiful collection of late bloomers!

We are already having some very cold weather in this part of Spain, very much out of season. I am on the Costa Brava, only 30 miles from the French border and 3 miles from the sea. Normally in this time of the year we have cool dry weather which is lovely, roses usually last till December, but this year it is raining and we are already bordering freezing temperatures.
