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'.
