Remembering November Colour

Back in November I was working in the garden and like the rest of you I was astounded by how much colour there still was all around. So I took some photos of what I could find. I’m slowly trying to identify what I have. Double photos can be hovered over for names or me hazarding a guess at names anyway.

Greater Periwinkle perhaps

I think this is Kerria Japonica Plenifloria. It seems very invasive with hardly any flowers.Meant to bloom April to May.

Wild primroses looking a little moth eaten but still pretty.

Fuchsia ‘Hawkshead’ maybe?

Fuchsia magellanica?

Lonicera japonica var.repens Creeping Japanese honeysuckle. It’s evergreen and pretty rampant.

Even the geraniums are still looking good and flowering.  I’m gambling on when to take them in.

Yellow Jasmine Gelsemium sempervirens.

A geranium I think. It’s been very pretty all summer and autumn.

Not sure, flowered in the summer and then returned after the cold snap in October.

Hydrangea Lacecap

Even the Evening Primrose was persistent.

Some roses were still hanging on.

The Mahonia which of course should be flowering now was in its element.

The weather is odd being so mild but it is lovely to have the colour remain just that little bit longer around us.
