Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – November 2016

img_1876

There are still a few annuals braving the chill – the one above, Calendula ‘Touch of Red Buff’ and below Nicotiana mutablis,img_1879

Antirrhinums include sumptuous ‘Black Prince’img_1894

and (in my view) insipid ‘The Rose’img_1883

As well as the pink flower carpet roses there is also this one, ‘Berkshire’ which is a very similar colour but has a more single form.img_1869

There are still Pelargoniums flowering well, this one is the ‘Boot Fair’ oneimg_1884

wonderful ‘Surcouf’img_1877

and this one, ‘Pink Capitatum’, the only one so far brought into the greenhouse.img_1875

There are at least a couple of Salvias (‘Dyson’s Scarlet’ and ‘Cerro Potosi’) covered in more blooms now than earlier in the year.img_1878

On the pergola the first few Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens ‘Freckles’ are flowering, but they are terribly tangled up with the roses and I’m a bit concerned both are suffering from the relationship!img_1881

In the greenhouse the loud Mandevilla Sundaville Pink is still pumping out its exotic blooms, but other exotics are still flowering (incongruously) outside.img_1874

This Grevilleaimg_1872

more Gazaniasimg_1871

and still the Nerines.img_1873

And to finish, not exotic, but what a good doer – Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’.img_1893

With thanks to Carol at May Dream Gardens who hosts everyone’s GBBDs.

    I don’t think you need fear that Freckle’s relatonship with the rose will come to no good as mine is in a similar relationship here and has never been happier! You have far more abundance still in your garden than we have here – so interesting to see what’s still bloming
