End of Month View – October 2010
I’m quite surprised to have plants around, at the end of September it seemed rather unlikely, but here we are with colour, and flowers still very much in attendance, even if they are somewhat fewer in number.
Viola and Cyclamen are making for a pretty picture
The trees seem to have suddenly decided it’s Autumn, many around us have now put on their show. It’s wonderful!
Tomatoes look rather sad, but actually add some colour, so I’m leaving them to nature.
Plump Cotoneaster berries will hopefully attract a few of the many, many Waxwings which have made the trip across from Scandinavia in the past week.
Dwarf Russian Almond
This Geranium is looking particularly pretty
And now for the star of the show… Aster ‘Lady in Black’
Mexican Fleabane is going strong
Shady area under the Cherry which will hopefully look much better next year. Along with the recently planted Ferns and Geraniums I also have Pulmonaria and plenty of Anemone and Tulip bulbs.
Btw, apologies if the photos are different, or look wrong. I’ve got a new laptop and am having a few issues with Photoshop CS5. I *think* they should look fine to you all but cannot be sure.
