November flowers.

The Indian summer and mild November weather has fooled a few flowers into a false sense of season.

 Echinops, a wonderful bee plant when the flowers open or cut at this stage it makes a good dried flower.

 Hypericum flowering, defiant of the rain.

 Embothrium in flower.

 The Rudbeckias were flattened by the rain, but flower on all the same.

 This rose has a wonderful scent and it's very own leaf umbrella.

We had a heavy frost yesterday, This rose (I think it is Glenfiddich) is enjoying warmer weather today.
 Melianthus flower bud Nov. 20th.
Some plants come into their own in winter.

 This crab apple is the epitome of cheerful abundance.
 Winter flowering cherry today. Prunus × subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea'.
