November in the garden.

A break from the rain ; and a brief sunny spell . Had me out for a wander in the garden . I 've never taken photos from this far end of the front garden. I have high hopes next year it will fill in nicely. I've moved in all my garden thugs  like ,Nepeta 'Souvenir de Andre Chandon' with gets all floppy with the first big spring rains . I don't think the Eremurus will be bothered when it shoots through all the tangle of  Andre.

Eucalyptus camphora  has made quite a comeback after last winter.

This orange Dahlia and purple Salvia combination is still going strong.

Another one making a comeback ,Cordyline Australis. Here joined by one of many NNicotiana Sylvestris.
 
And here with Artemisisia 'Powis Castle'  and Saccharum ravennae .

    1. Peter, The grasses have really bulked up this year. I may need a chain saw to cut them down next spring.

    1. Jane, We've had quite a mild wet autumn , so things are still looking fresh …not much autumnal color though . I was really pleased with the orange and purple . I'd bought the Dahlia late in the summer and really didn't now red/orange it would bloom.
