Garden in November.


Last week and previous week I did some order in the garden and created a high pile of branches, sticks, grass, leaves and fallen fruits, which was taken away by the service on Thursday. Uch.
Now the garden looks fine. I did some mulch with fallen leaves around young trees and mediterranean plants and put the rest of fallen leaves into special wire cylinder. I made it for the first time, as I saw it in Austria and think it is a good idea how to keep fallen leaves under control and get some leaf mould till spring.
Autumn is quite pleasant, foggy and wet nights and sunny days mostly, so some plants still going on.

Hortensia are not flowering anymore, but their leaves are still on branches, showing all kind of bronze red green colours.

Notorious Eden rose. Last flower taken to vase.

Viburnum tinus, which had only pale buds a week ago, is showing nice little flowers. Sorry, I made the photo in the late evening, so my camera didn´t focus them well.

Calendulas didn´t give it up, yet :)

Let me introduce you my sweetchestnut Bojar, sort, which was breeded in the Carpathian mountains. It is around 5 year old and had its first three chestnuts this year :) I think it is protected here against disease, which was imported in previous year by Italian maroni trees.

Lovely Spirea gives accent to the hedge,

This year was very bad for rhododendrons and I lost two older shrubs and two are afflicted. It happened in our garden at the river. This garden is dry and without water supply, so plants are doomed to die or survive, but to my surprise, rhododendrons are full of new buds over here.

Lot of mushrooms this season….

My oak tree is guarding them :)

November is the darkest month, so the sunset comes very soon. See you soon and thank you.

You have been busy! Lovely pictures - it's such a good time of year, even though summer has left us. I have loved it since I was a child. I love poking about in the garden spotting all sorts of interesting bits and pieces - twigs, fungi and seedheads.

You still have some colour in your garden. That makes the colder weather more bearable, I think. My garden is doing well, with lupins, foxgloves, aquilegia & roses all putting in an appearance now, but the weather is freezing cold. I have four layers on this morning, & the heater! And wewill soon officially slip into summer. Something strange going on! Enjoy your garden before the cold breath of winter steals it away from you, Katarina. But winter has its own beauty.
