While waiting for your Spring gardens.....

.....just a few from my Autumn garden, though there won't be much. I hate the thought that your flowers are still aways off for you.


The Gaura amidst the petunias. Petunias are great value here, they seem to flower for a ridiculously long time.

Then two David Austin roses, Brother Cadfael and Grace.

Thanks for sharing those beautiful flowers

Salvia Hot Lips. Some flowers are red, some white, some red and white.

I have Alyssum along the front of many of the rose beds, it smells beautiful.

The rose Regensburg.

Hi L4H, I'm nearly off to bed but wouldn't have a clue what the time is where you are.

You need to look for it but there is a blue salvia here on the left blending in with the petunia colours.

A humble geranium.

Some yellow(ish) petunias.

Melinda, my mother's name was Grace so I just had to have that one. Yes, you'd be looking ahead, while I am getting depressed because I know there won't be many flowers at all during Autumn/Winter here.

Lady of Meginch, described as a rosette type. It is certainly apt.

Lichfield Angel, next to the above. They have flowered repeatedly , a wonderful pair.

Finally a little Aster.

There is a flood warning here, darn it! Heavy rain tomorrow and the next day. I am getting sick of these tropical storms extending from coast to coast like they have this Summer. It is very humid here tonight. I shouldn't complain though when a friend in Queensland got a text message and a landline call today telling them they should consider evacuating. I am praying they stay safe seeing she won't leave her home.

I can smell those flowers....

Where in the world are flowers blooming right now? Australia?
We probably won't see a hint of colour until April here in Northern Ontario.
Those roses pictured are beautiful..... my favourite

Many flowers have I seen
The rose is a good'un
But give to me the good old flour
That makes a Yorkshire puddin'

Yes Goldfields lives in Australia! While we're enduring our winter bleakness she fills our screens with beautiful flowers. Hope your friend manages well with the flooding Goldfields, and that you don't get any yourself.
