Well me dears it was a mild November, that is until we had a few harsh frosts towards the end of it.
Luckily these photos were taken just before they hit
The salvias and nicotiana were still flowering away.
as were the penstemons and coreopsis.
This nastertium is now just a black mush.
The fuchsias are still flowering though.
and Billy Green.
All of the osteospermums have been very disappointing this year with lots of growth but few flowers.
This one seems to be trying to make up for it.
The wonderful cobaea is still doing it stuff even after the frost.
The pelargoniums are sheltering alongside the kitchen wall.
All in all the garden looked very good this month,
even if a little too cold and damp to sit out in it for long
Indoors the lovely Aeschynanthus “Hot Flash” is giving us another flush .
We treated our selves to a massive hippeastrum bulb while on a visit to the RHS urban garden show.
The front garden is still looking full with the nicotiana sylvestris refusing to die down or stop flowering
canna indica seedlings.
The tree dahlia in the back ground is no more the frost got it but who knows it might survive in the ground till next Spring.
We have pansies and violas to cheer us up in the winter ahead
and a whole batch of seedlings in waiting.
Well that's November for you.
We will see what December has in store for us
