That’s it November is very near the end. Two lockdowns and numerous tiered and weird settings for day to day life to be unsettled. We have all been through a lot together, on our own, in bubble. We can and have got through it this far. Well, all there is for it is to get on with gardening, it’s a very good way forward . It’s Six on Saturday, here we go….

1) Colour of Cotoneaster branch. This looked like an interesting colour and form so I took a picture, as you can see below. There was something about this that made it look interesting. As if winter can interesting at times. Then there’s the red berry that almost made it in the picture alas not to be.

2) Fern. This has to be a one of those plants that’s hanging in there because it is still spectacularly full of these amazing fronds. Okay, they are beginning to go over but this is a brilliant show of just one portion. It may have to be moved as it is in the wrong place for the size it has become. It has to die back as there’s the Narcissus to bloom nearby and be shown off and not be towered over by this fern.


3) Muscari, Latofolium. These where planted last month, probably early part of the month. They are certainly beginning to make their presence known with this show of leaves. As they are in a pot I can move them to the best advantage point, too.

4) Viola. Hoping these will continue give some winter colour throughout.

5) Hellebore, common. This is the same plant that has decided to continue because I have left it alone. Not that there’s been many a threat to get rid of it. It will go one day. It even survived the tree surgeon when they cut down the Ash tree the other month! Well, not for much longer as I have plans for a raised bed in this area.

6) Erysimum. These Wallflowers do bring an amazing show of colour in a time when there’s sometimes little to see of colour. they will continue to flower throughout the Winter, all being well.
