Six on Saturday 26/11/22

On the local news the other day they said that we had had something like 130% of Novembers rainfall up to the 20th of the month. And it’s still falling! However, the sun was shining yesterday so that seemed a good opportunity to take this weeks pictures.

  • I’m going to start indoors this week as the Thanksgiving/Christmas Cacti are in full bloom.
  • A couple of weeks ago I showed a picture of Euonymus elatus in its full glory

Just before the leaves fall the red fades to yellow. Most of the leaves have come off in the heavy rain/strong wind but there’s a few left to show the effect.

  • The Alstroemerias seem able to take whatever the weather throws at them and keep flowering regardless. This is A. ‘Summer Lovely’
  • I’ve found it hard to find plants that will grow happily in the little froggy pond. It gets quite shady in the summer which doesn’t suit a lot of aquatic plants. Others just get too big and go for pond domination. I planted Scirpus cernuus in the spring and it’s done well. It’s common name is the Fibre Optic plant which suits it. The Duck Weed has also done well this year 😔
  • Hesperanthus ‘Ice Maiden’ has been flowering for weeks and, although a bit battered by the weather, is still flowering well. When it first comes into flower the blooms are very nearly white but, as time has gone on, they’ve developed a definite blush.
  • Yesterdays late afternoon sun made the Beech hedge look as though it was glowing.

A fairly quick Six this week as I’m off now to run my last workshop of the year.

Thanks to Jim at https://gardenruminations.co.uk for taking over the reins. That’s also where you’ll find all of the other Sixes. Have a great weekend.

  1. As a quilter mysef, I am overwhelmed by your georgous quilt. That looks like it took a lot of planning before you even started piecing. Beautiful!
