End Of Month – November 2014
No photos of the garden this month, I’ve had a cold over the weekend which coincided with the only nice weather we’ve for what feels like months – exaggeration, I know but it’s been so foggy for so long it’s beginning to affect me. It’s also unlikely I’ll manage any photos during the week as I don’t know what my work pattern will be yet as I’ve just started a new job. No more lovely finishing at 2…
The garden isn’t much different to the end of October; the main change is that many of the shrubs are now bare which a month ago they were still mostly leafed. I will soon be keeping an eye out for the emergence of Snowdrops and other spring bulbs; so far I’ve only seen some muscari. I’m also going to have a check on the Hellebores for any signs of buds/new growth. Many of the plants I moved into pots have new buds on them, so hopefully that’s a good sign that I didn’t stress them too much.
After mentioning a few times, the Winter Jasmine is in bloom and I need to have a look at the Autumn-flowering Cherry for signs of blooming.
A few roses are still in flower, but if the temperature dips I think it’s likely they’ll be killed off – note to self, really must get another Iceberg rose as they bloom almost year-round unless hit by snow.
The Dahlias are all mostly stopped blooming, but the plants aren’t yet dead and I’m uncertain when to pull them up – I don’t plan on keeping their tubers so just need to find some winter plants to replace them.
So, instead I’ll have to leave you with some pretty ‘bokeh’ grass photos I took a while ago:
