November Garden

Rather belatedly, here is my November garden, pictures taken on the 2nd November.

This Viburnam will flower until next April.

The berries on the Sorbus are eaten late, so we have the display for ages. The branches are well weighed down

The small Mahonia is flowering well and is seen here in context.

Graham Thomas is the best value of my Old English roses, flowering off and on till christmas The Hydrangea came from a co-in-law and is fairly small, flowers well and does not mind our limy soil

The fairly new shrub bed in the far corner is looking appropriately autumy

I love my brave little cyclamen who press on through foul and cold weather and spread themselves too.

Betula ermanii pendula is a joy throughout the winter with its creamy-white stem. The two young ones will not add to the view from my bedroom for a year or two.

The beech hedge was one of the best things I did when I first came. It is a marvellous shelter for the vegetable area.

Your garden is full of structure and colour even this late in the season, Withy. I can see it gives you a lot of pleasure.
Mine looks a sodden mess after recent rain and wind. I have made a start to trimming, cutting and sweeping but I have got several hours of hard work ahead.

What a beautiful place, even if it's not in its full glory.

Sadly, the dogs have demolished everything here.

Oh dear Withy, once more I have a nasty attack of garden envy.Everything seems to have blown over in my small plot.

Thank you Withy.Does it mind lime soil?

Your garden is lovely Withy. My hydrangeas were doing well until this recent heat spell in South Australia with temperatures around 38 and 39 degrees.They droop very quickly, and don't like the heat much at all. As it's only November, I dread to think what February and March will be like - our hottest months.I love the way you've structured your garden.

I had no idea roses could bloom so late in the year - and they really are lovely. I am nurturing my cyclamen but they have to take as yet.
