Saturday in the garden
A first frost this morning, its very calm and sunny, probably more rain tonight though. It has rained every day this month so far.
I got a tray of these earlier and they are still flowering nicely.
2. Salvia Amethyst lips
This is like S. 'Hot lips' but with a dark purple colour. Its possible that the colour is more stable as there are no all-white flowers on this plant, whereas there are on my 'Hot lips'.
3. Alstroemeria 'Summer breeze'
This has been great value this year. It has flowered continuously since I got it, and is still going strong.
4. Cotoneaster leaves and berries
The leaves and berries of this Cotoneaster are almost exactly the same colour. In the background there are the orange berries of the Pyracantha.
5. Winter jasmine
I cut this back a fair amount, hoping that it would put on some new growth, but that doesn't seem to have happened much and there is just a small patch of this left. There are a reasonable number of flowers on it and it is good to have a little bit of colour at this time of the year.
6. Lobelia - self seeded
Saw these and thought they were Lobelia which they indeed turned out to be. They are lasting better than most of the ones that I bought.
