More pictures from my garden which is still lit up on the dullest of days by the autumn colour.  This is what gets me out in the garden every morning before I have


breakfast  And here is my front door.

 And golden grass, Milium aureum in my drive.

 certainly cheered me up too Marion.  Lovely to be still enjoying the garden mid November.

Happy Marion, glad to see someone else growing Bowles golden grass. When it flowers the whole plant comes alive. My garden is full of flowering grasses at mo just when so much is dying down

Happy Marion, just read your profile. What an energetic lady you are

Very true, Verdun.  It's being so active keeps me going!

Lovely colours Marion. This is my tulip tree It's about 15 years old but has never flowered. Does the one in your photo flower?

16/11/2012 at 14:41

The one in my picture is very big and very old and flowers before mine and a,so colours up before mine as well.  My tree is 24 or so and only started flowering a couple of years ago so don't give up on it.  The flowers are lovely - like big yellow tulips.

Thanks marion. I'll try to be patient. It's a lovely tree so the flowers will be a bonus

And still the lovely autumn colour gets better and better.  Even my Green Daleks look glamorous framed by the golden leaves of the weigela.

 And the wonderful red leaves on my Rhododendron "

Late autumn colour from the acers in the Bristol Univ. Bot. Garden.

Really beautiful Marion. We've got to make the most of it now. The leaves are falling fast here.

Yes, the last of the trees to get denuded in Bristol this year are the oaks and the leaves are falling fast today from them as it is wet and windy.  But that only emphasises the bright red berries and leaves of the cotoneaster and my are they blazing out to all and sundry.  will post a picture later.

Normally the oak leaves stay on all winter but this year they are falling now. Maybe it's this year's weather conditions

Oaks lose their leaves in winter around here - only young oaks (like young beech) tend to keep their autumn leaves until late into the winter.

White is also a colour and cylamen and heather come in white in my winter planter.  Here it is on 2nd of December unscathed by the recent rain and frost.
