Hey, plants ! ... This is mid-NOVEMBER !!!

42 comments


Chilly blue skies over the sunny Silver Birch tree …

… shivery mornings … golden leaves starting to fall …

The pigeon, perched up high, senses autumn is here …

… this is the time of year to fluff up your feathers …

……………………………………………………………………..

But my gardens are holding on to summer …

Do your plants know it’s mid-November ? …

Mine are refusing to admit that winter’s on its way …


……………………………………………………………………..

Front garden sedums are still flowering …

……………………………………………………………………..

Astilbe determined to produce one final display …


……………………………………………………………………..

A reliable rose bush … inherited from my mother …


……………………………………………………………………..

Rosa ballerina … dancing defiantly …


……………………………………………………………………..

Parahebe … snuggled near the raised bed …


……………………………………………………………………..

Coronilla valentina … bright and beguiling …

Last year’s purchase … I’m very pleased with it …


……………………………………………………………………..

Fuchsia Swing Time … one of my favourites …


……………………………………………………………………..

An unlabelled little rose from a market stall …

Bought 5 years ago, it had produced nothing …

… but this November it has lovely red blooms …


……………………………………………………………………..

At the back by my shed … Skimmia Magic Marlot …

in front … flowers of Heuchera Gypsy Dancer …


……………………………………………………………………..

Rosa Paper Anniversary … pure white clusters …

……………………………………………………………………..

Rosa Warm Welcome … no signs of cooling off …

…………………………………………………………………….

New growth on miniature lilac … superb scent …


……………………………………………………………………..

In the Pebble Garden … happy Campanula …


……………………………………………………………………..

Fuchsia Eva Boerg … pretty purples …


……………………………………………………………………..

Above the arch, more of mother’s roses …

……………………………………………………………………..

But the birch leaves are falling faster …

Winter won’t wait …

……………………………………………………………………..

… so … wrap up … warm and cosy …

… stay safe from the storms … everyone … xxx

The blurry white is Truffle’s ever wagging tail …

My dogs enjoy dressing up …

… these are charity shop hats …

… we have lots of fun … :o)

some of my plants are refusing to believe it's November as well. you've still got lots of colour which must cheer up the autumnal/wintry days.

Nice to see your garden with so many beautiful flowers at this time of year TT. Conker and Truffle are ready for the cold snap, I see :o)

Hi Lijemc ..
Plants don't seem to be noticing the cold weather, do they !

Ha ha Roy ..
my dogs are VERY enthusiastic about their headgear :o)))

Hello Hywel .. thanks ..
This time of year, it's nice to look out of my windows at so many flowers ..

We are all definitely ready for winter, with our woolly hats .. gloves .. scarfs ... ;o)

There's always friendly rivalry as to which dog gets to wear a hat first !!!

It cheers a body up to still see the roses blooming as well as everything else showing colour in the gardens, we all know it has to end soon for a while but we are doing so well this year.
Lovely photo's Terra but naturally Conker and Truffle are always the tops, they do look cosy, LOL......

Nice to see so much still going on in your garden TT.. I still have a few flowers out, but with this cold weather coming don't think they will last much longer...
love the doggies in thier hats... :)))))

18 Nov, 2013

 

Hi Holly .. Thanks ..
Yes, you're right ..

My dogs send hugs to Kayleigh :o)))

18 Nov, 2013

 

I missed your lovely blog and pics,Terra..sorry,but I have just posted a similar one..I wasn't copying ,Honest! The ending is similar to yours,but no waggy tail ! Lol
I really like the Coronilla,and Parahebe,and the boys look great in their winter warmers..:o) I am amazed how long the foliage is lasting on the trees this year..just a wonderful sight everywhere you look :o) xx

So many colours in your garden, Terra. Is your garden Western oriented? Your Paper Anniversary rose looks like my White Fairy rose. Almost identical.
Doggies are cute in their caps :-) Do they really wear them in the winter? My Noris has Scottish coat (checked). Since I have seen Truffle and Conker in their caps, I am seriously thinking of buying him balmoral, lol.

18 Nov, 2013

 

Wonderful for November Terra, don't know how you do it.

18 Nov, 2013

 

I think, that altogether with a good gardener a clue could be in western oriented garden ;-)

19 Nov, 2013

 

The boys look wonderful in their hats.....and your garden is a picture too, so much going on still.🌟🌟

19 Nov, 2013

 

Thanks folks ..
Kat ... my gardens are not west-facing ...
... some parts are south-facing ..
and thank you Dotty for the 🌟🌟 :o)))

So many pretty plants to look at as December approaches! You will look back at this blog and think how wonderful it was in November 2013 to have so much colour remaning and the scent of a lilac in bloom!!

21 Nov, 2013

 

Hi Chris ..

22 Nov, 2013

Hi Sandra ..
Thank you ... still plenty in flower ... x

1 Dec, 2013

 

Terra please would you remind me the name of your "new purchase"? I say a large bed of it at Exmouth last winter and failed to remember what it was.
