Cold Color

Cold dark November, but the flowers still bloom. Calendula and borage continue being colorful in my rose/herb bed.

Himalayan honeysuckle has hundreds of these alienish flowers/berries/whatever they might be.

This little self seeded godetia managed one flower, which seems to be lasting many many days.

My cotoneaster grew berries this year. This was a cutting taken from a volunteer from our old house. I loved its berries, and wanted one in this garden too.

A few sad roses continue blooming, despite the wet and cold. Here's Dark Lady, looking especially cheerful in the rare sunlight.

William Morris shyly opens one bloom on a dry day.

Malva continues to bloom in the flower bed, amonst a few nasturtiums still peeking through.

Inside I have a thunbergia, 2 years old this year, and blooming like crazy right by our back door.

What a lot of flowers there still are in your garden! I envy you that gorgeous William Morris, does it have a scent?

That Himalayan honeysuckle looks pretty special with those fruits on it, love the colour of those fruits.

Oh, you have a Leycesteria in your garden! She is on my must-have-list next year.
