A little life still in the garden.


By alextb


Below are some of the very few plants that remain before the cold winds, snow, forst and ice come our way.

Sorry for the picture quality, but I had to use flash due to low light levels, and without the pictures only showed bad silhouettes.

Yellow Pansy & Orange Viola Trough (Suffered severely from squirrel damage, and was removed for a month to recouperate.)

Orange Chrysanthemum

Buddleia “Black Knight” & “White Bouquet”
(Bought in Autumn and treated with disolved root hormone to try and encourage a better root system before the frosts and snow, as the roots were very small.)

Pansy Pot with red rose bush poking up behind. (Red Rose “Red Dream.”)

Yellow Rose Bush “Buff Beauty”

Blue Violas


Rosemary (pruned)

Frontal Display

Cypressus “Wilma Goldcrest” & Primroses

Pansy Basket (Sorry about the wreath in the way.)

Hydrangea (looking a little worse for wear.)

English Lavender

Hosta “Patriot”



Finally, to finish the blog, a couple of photos of a ladybird I found on my Yellow Bush Rose “Buff Beauty”.
