Another week goes by and still the garden surprises me with flowers to raise a smile.
We are crossing over from late Autumn to early Winter. The leaves are covering the lawn and need raking, but it is a thankless job. Some leaves I’m saving for compost, but I don’t want all the Sycamore and Ivy seeds and berries, so some of the leaf piles are going into the green recycling.
First photo goes to the Winter Jasmine. I hope that the neighbour’s building work doesn’t destroy the plant’s root system near the shared fence-line.
Second photo goes to my last Cosmos, it looks much healthier than others that I’ve shown you. Perhaps it won’t be the last!
The third photo is of some Stock seedlings which are over-wintering in the greenhouse. The seeds came on the front of a gardening magazine and I have sown some during the Autumn and I will sow the rest in Spring.
My fourth photo is of the Fuchsia which is still flowering and brightening up the boarder.
My fifth photo goes to the very last Sweetpea flower. The plant has been blown over in recent winds, but the flower has valiantly carried on.
My final photo is to the Mahonia which is putting on a great show and is attracting the bees that are still around.
