More colour in the garden!


I thought I would have another walk round the garden to see if there was more autumn colour and pleased to say that there was.
Enjoy the walk with me!

The last two are the Amalenchier and a close up of a Malus

The Sorbus which is only 2 years old!

The fuschia Lady Boothby which has gone mad this year!
Thank you Shirley!

Cornus Kousa

Trachlesphermum Jasminoides. A close up.

And to end the walk with the shrub which I know Ange will know as I have forgotten again! Senior moment! Haha!

I'm so impressed with your garden, Rose, it's a smasher!

Wow, what a colourful garden. Your Hydrangeas are looking great.

Such lovely photos of a wide variety of plants. Hard to believe it is nearly November! Love your fuschia and the very pretty clematis too. Let’s hope the colour continues for quite some time!

Thanks Julia. I do love my hydrangeas and can't get enough of them. I don't know why your jasmine went black as mine stay red all through the winter.
Thank you Seaburn!
Thanks Ange. No name for me then! I will have to scroll through my blogs and find it and WILL write it down this time!
Thank you Feverfew!
Thanks Chris! The perennial flowers just keep on going!
The fuschia has absolutely gone mad! It must be down to all the rain we are having. xxx
Thank you so much Klahanie.

Rose, your garden continues to look really pretty and colourful right through mid autumn. Your fuchsia is definitely persistent in bloom! Mine stopped flowering ages ago.
Your hydrangea is still looking attractive - I love their fading autumnal colour too.
Love the mix of seasonal foliage colour.

You've so many lovely autumn colours there Rose! The little Acer is a joy to see, a real fire cracker and the two hydrangeas, are beautiful, can you remember which ones they are?
I've a similar white, fading to pink/green, it's either Silver Dollar or Limelight, a can never remember which. Mine's not a very strong specimen, I think the soil could do with improving..:(

Thanks Kate, I can't believe how long everything is still flowering!
I need to move a few plants around as some are taller than others and can't just yet!

Hello Janey, I have actually got 5 hydrangeas in this border and one the other side, plus two in pots and the only name I remember is the large flowered cream one which is Annabelle. You could say I am addicted to Hydrangeas and if I could find room, I would buy more!
I have clay soil here, but in the beginning when we first moved here, I just put plenty of multi purpose compost in all the borders and have done nothing since, which is now 5 years since moving here and all I did , especially in the summer is keep them well watered.
So don't worry too much about yours!

Your garden is still nice and colourful Rose :)

Thank you Hywel! What would we do without our gardens!

1 Nov, 2023


I don't know Rose. I would certainly be lost without mine ...

Same here Hywel!

Rose, how do you keep those Hydrangeas looking so good?!! I only have the two Lacecap ones now, one in the front, the other in the back and neither have looked good this year. Lovely to see the Fuchsia thriving with you ... :o)

Hi Shirley, all I do is make sure I water them all well in the summer and they are also in a sheltered position in the garden. I am really pleased with the fuschia!

Thanks Rose, well mine have certainly had enough rain recently! Today is another one of sun in between the heavy downpours so I'm fed up with it now. So pleased Lady B. grows well for you.
