Gorgeous! Is the third pic Leucothoe? So pretty, but I believe it wouldn't like my soil because they prefer acid - what do you think??

Dawn, I bet like me, you didn't want to come indoors today! What a corker! Some beautiful autumn colours in your garden and how lovely to have an Iris :)

The iris has flowered a few times this year - Siris is this usual?
3d the last one is Alstromeria Indian summer.
Yes Amy, the seasons are special. Thanks Seaburn, I hope you're feeling ok.
Sheila, it's a Euphoria, I must try and remember which one, they like my clay.
Karen, it's been beautiful hadn't it. Thanks Stera.

Lovely colour in your garden. That Iris is an old variety, the one I call Early Yellow, but it does have the ability to rebloom. It has done for me in the past.

Thanks Siris, and more buds below. I think it's flowered 3 times this year, the first time it was frosted so very early in the year, it's so lovely

The Alstroemeria is lovely. Not sure if we have "Indian Summer" : must ask the Boss.

Ours were disappointing during the hot Summer days but now they have come into their own again . It's a lovely long-lasting cut flower and great for arrangements added to others.

I love the Alstromeria and can't believe that your Yucca is still flowering. Ours flowered (poorly, just four spikes) earlier in the year but now has the brown stems left. It had 14 flowers last year, so I suppose that was either a really good year, or this one too hot - can it be too hot for Yuccas?

Eirlys, mine are in pots near the house so had plenty of water during the summer. Great they’ve flowered again.
Honeysuckle, this yucca didn’t flower earlier in the year, strange. Yes I thought they liked heat and dry conditions, 14 flowers last year! Wow!

Nice autumn photos Dawn. Love the Alstromeria !
Sorry I'm late catching up :)

Thank you Hywel. Yes I recommend the alstroemeria.
We had lovely rain all day today, I hope you and Beryl are well.

14 Oct, 2018

 

Yes we're all right thanks. I hope you are also :)

Beautiful photos.
I am off to give my alstroemeria a talking to, to find out why it doesn't look as good as yours!!!
All your plants look so lovely in the autumn light.
