October in the garden...

I thought I'd better get in a October post in before October is over.  I took a bunch of photos yesterday It's been a beautiful few days ,  a little cold and misty in the morning , but clear , dry and sunny late in the day . I've  been sitting in the South/West  sun trap corner that gets the late sun.                         Jumping up now and again to dig up and move things around while it's still nice out.

                                                   Hamamelis 'Diane' is a brilliant red  right now.

I don't know how I'm going to plant bulbs in all this .
Saccharum Ravenna 
The shady seating area has been abandoned till next year.
Eucalyptus camphora has grown back nicely after  a rough winter.
This is what had be jumping out of my  seat this week . I've dug out a some of the Bronze Fennel , swapped over some Carex for a Pennisetum . The flopped over  tall white Aster is now sitting behind  the white Anemone . A big clump of Helianthus joined them as well. 
And here is the  Anemone that's getting  all the new company , I thought I'd make  a yellow and white  area.
