Despite it being a very cold and wet autumn, my garden for some reason is changing colours quite late and still managing the occasional rose bud!

We're actually having a really nice day, today.

I think we've dropped into an alternate universe!!

Yep, you can. But then again, there's cold and then there's cold. Just remind me when you're in the middle of a Canadian winter won't you Con ;)

Lovely flowers, everyboardie! :D


I took a couple of pictures again in my tiny garden. Some of them are a bit blurry, but I hope the garden enthusiasts will forgive me even if the photo enthusiasts won't. ;)

The dogrose, not as fancy as the other roses, but very pretty:

Gertrude Jekyll - lovely fragrant flowers.
Image

The first flower on my pretty white climber:
Image

Three of my Clematises are already flowering:
ImageImageImage
So far I have been unable to get the colour of the red one right. It's really a very deep dark red. I put my paw next to one of the flowers to show you how huge they are.

Roses and herbs (there are lots of big hairy psiders living in the cracks in those walls): Image

Can anyone tell me what this is? It just grew in my flowerbed and I like it's colour:
Image

Aquilegia for Aunty:

Jakob's ladder + bee:
Image

A somewhat older picture. All the tulips have long gone, of course:

Lovely flowers everyone, I live in a small block of flats and have stopped planting flowers because the local kids just wander in and nick them, or destroy them. Still, I get to see what everyone has got in theirs here. :D
