Cathy at Words and Herbs has decided to stop her Tuesday View during the winter, I will continue to show the view but perhaps not every week.
Today is 1st November and it has not been an autumnal day at all but a gloriously warm sunny day which I would associate more with September than November. Plants in the garden continue to enjoy the weather too and many are producing more flowers now than I’ve seen since May or June. I took these images at about 4.30 pm so the sun is already sinking in the sky but that only adds to the pleasure of photographing these flowers.
The crab apples are similar in colour to the afternoon crimson of R. mutabilis.
I am so pleased to see that most of last year’s Anemone coronaria have foliage and many are beginning to show buds.
The outer petals are darker than the centres giving a lovely effect, especially in this light.
I hope your 1st of November is as good as it is here.
