It is still beautiful and pleasant outside and I wonder how long it will last.
In front the Japanese Maple Crimson Queen is loosing its leaves now. It is dense branching and a good winter shelter for all small birds including hummingbirds.

The cosmos is blooming right now like it would be middle of summer. This is only one plant. It was not meant to be so tall. I have several in different places and they all look the same….very tall.

Japanese maple Waterfall in forest setting….brightens the spot. I planted it in half barrel few years back just for that reason…it is chartreuse green all year round..

Detail of leaves.

Still lots of leaf colour around

This Japanese Maple ‘Atropurpureum’ has not lost one single leaf yet and the colour intensity is remarkable.

Few bits of colouful blooms but very little now

Salvia I bought for our hummingbirds is still blooming.

Calendulas grown from seeds do not seem to mind that it is November.

I got out all the annuals from my pots on deck but the verbena still looks good. So next year I will buy more of them.

Pink verbena

We inherited this Dawn Viburnum (Viburnum x bodnantense) and it is a huge (shrubby) plant right now. I have never pruned it and it snakes around our deck’s rail. It is quite fragrant and I am sure that is why it was planted where it is. It blooms beautifully all winter long. Leaves are turning purple right now but will fall off eventually and only these bright little flowers will dot the bare branches. Very pretty.

A Canadian garden angel on guard.

This Bigleaf Maple is close to our driveway so all these leaves will have to be dealt with soon (sigh) .

It is a very large tree and hard to photograph.

So far we have been lucky with our weather but forecast is not very favorable.

Thank you ladies for your kind words.

Anget, she has been with me for many years. Most of the time invisible and forgotten behind a clump of daylilies. She shows off when the vegetation is cut down.

I am delighted that you like my garden SBG.

Amy, I am in love with that maple. I cannot even count how many red Japanese maples did not survive here but this one seems happy where planted (so far)

You have a beautiful garden, Klahanie! An array of gorgeous colours and amazing plants. It’s always lovely to feel like we’ve had a tour around. I do love Japanese maples, we have a few little ones - compared to yours! ☺️
The waterfall, umbrella shaped one is so striking among the forest greenery.

Yorkslass thanks for the compliment on our garden and my photos.
It is hard to switch to your new name after 8 years calling you Stera, but will get there slowly. :-)

Thank you Kidsgran for your comment. Seems like we both like same plants. I know that you have lots of heathers and I have plenty of them too.

Such a joy to see your garden, everything blends together perfectly, is that a large camellia you have if so a bet that’s a picture in the spring, do you have the acer that puts on its autumn foliage in the spring it had lovely pink shrimp foliage the name escapes me, one of the gardens I work in had a magnificent specimen but this year during last winters it has died along with a Ginko, wisteria and a Chinese rain tree, Koelrutea I fear that he may have phytophora in the garden, in the fields at the back of his garden many blackthorn have also suddenly died its a huge concern as his garden is full of unusual plants .

Lovely tour of your garden Kh. I especially liked the Acer Waterfall in that dark spot & love the Angel. Lots of colour still. I hope it lasts a bit longer for you. Thanks for sharing.

Stunning colours in your garden Klahanie especially the Acers, I enjoyed my peep around, thankyou for sharing your lovely photo's of a well kept and much loved garden....

Klahanie is it really 8 years? Good gracious how time flies.
Yes I found it hard to change my name but am getting used to it!

Julian,Thank you.
Yes it is a camellia and it is absolutely stunning in early spring. I do have an acer Shindeshojo with brilliant red colour in spring and salmon colour in fall. What a shame that so many plants died in your customer's gardens. Heartbreaking, actually.
We have lots of rain and prolonged wetness here as well during winter and I always wonder if my new plantings will survive.
Thanks again for your note.

Feverfew, Thanks for liking the Acer Waterfall and my garden Angel. The weather is still quite nice. Good thing because there is still lots of work out there (putting beds to sleep and planting spring bulbs.)

Thanks Lincslass for your kind words.

I joined GOY in 2010, Yorkslass but did not participate for couple of years. I always enjoyed your presence and wisdom here

You have a wonderful looking garden, Klahanie!

I am glad you like it Balcony. Thanks for letting me know.

Your autumn garden is very colourful. I hope it lasts a while longer for you.

All looking fantastic Klahanie. Yes, Verbena is a favourite of mine - so long-flowering - and your Viburnum is quite beautiful 🙂.

5 Nov, 2020

 

Thank you Hywel. I've noticed that trees are starting to lose their leaves quicker now. We cleaned up yesterday and today is so messy again. I am afraid all that wonderful colour is leaving us.

6 Nov, 2020

 

Thank you Sheila. That Viburnum Dawn is visible through our dining room sliding doors and we will be able to enjoy it throughout winter months.

Hope all is well with you and K. XX

Thanks Klahanie, yes we are fine. And by the way, my Cosmos are also taller than usual this year 🙂.
