Looking round the plot

last Sunday morning I have to say that following a miserable wet Saturday it’s now all starting to look rather forlorn and  a bit soggy.

Nerine bowdenii

 

Although it’s been surprising mild, and still no frost, the rain and wind some days has certainly taken it’s toll on most of the remaining flowers.  Despite that a few plants are still doing okay. There’s the pot of nerine bowdenii with their exotic looking flowers.

 

 

 

Rose 'Pretty Lady, Nov'15

 

 

 

The rose Pretty Lady continues to bloom nearly six months after it started back in May.

 

 

 

 

An orange 'Flighty's favourite'

 

 

And of course there are still some pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites like this orange one.

 

 

 

 

Have a good weekend!

    Pretty Lady has done so well this year, her blooms are still perfect even though it’s November. I think we’re definitely heading in to winter now, most things are done with or spoilt by the rain and wind, but as you say, there are still a few stragglers, they’re certainly cheering me up when I see them.

    Lovely to see the last of the flowers. I was down at my plot today and it was soggy and weedy. The strawberries are flowering madly though, and there are even some green berries. Not sure what’s going on there, they did nothing all summer. Hope all is well with you. CJ xx

    Nice to see these bright spots of color in an otherwise quiet plot. That nerine is enchanting and such a lovely shade of pink.
