We also have this blooming:
That’s Winter Jasmine… Normally it doesn’t bloom until Feb/March?? It’s taking its sweet time growing though but hopefully this year it now has enough growth on it that I’ll actually be able to easily see its blooms as normally they’re hidden behind other plants.
A couple of Geraniums have also decided to put on a final show:
Again, this one is also usually hidden due to the Aster ‘Lady in Black’ hiding it (as you can see the aster to the left of the shot). This is why I’m going to move the Aster next spring so I can actually see the border behind it!
The blooms of said Aster are beginning to open…
I’ve done a little shuffling around in the Aster border… The nettles which were in the way of the path have been moved to the back so I can get past them. I’ve also moved the large Geranium and placed Pheasant’s grass, persicaria and some Dierama in its place.
To fill the space mentioned in my post last week I’ve ordered some Stipa gigantea… I hope it doesn’t look too out of place.
