GBBD – November (very early)
We’re not finished quite yet… And I probably ought to have saved these photos until the GBBD on Tuesday… Although I may not be around much on Monday and Tuesday with my brother coming to visit from Italy and then my graduation and birthday makes for a busy few days. So perhaps this ought to be an early GBBD post and I may post again closer to the 15th.
We’re now officially scraping the bottom of the barrel for photos… With the recent cooler nights there’s a lot of beautiful firey foliage around now (just a shame it’s in everyone else’s garden but mine) and my Acer ‘Katsura’ is looking much like an amazing pack of gems with a whole range of colours from green emeralds to rubies and even amethyst or onyx.
There are plenty of Cosmos still flowering, and the perennial wallflower is its trusty companion. Both have been blooming for months now.
I don’t often photograph the Verbena, generally because it’s so much taller than everything else and the angle I shoot at means it’s missed out.
There isn’t a great deal of colour on the autumn cherry yet, although it is beginning to change… Yet another year where I don’t have blooms in the autumn… Perhaps it isn’t an autumn flowering cherry at all?
