Good morning! I’m hosting How Does Your Garden Grow for Annie today while she’s jet setting around Iceland. Lucky devil!
Hydrangeas are the only thing in our garden worth photographing at the moment. I think they are at their best this time of year because they fade so beautifully. We have two plants; one white and one blue and the petals on both are now completely multicoloured.
When the strong winds hit I was worried the branches on one of them would snap so I moved the plant closer to the house. Tucked way at the back away from the cold were these green flower heads.
The blue hydrangea heads are now marbled with pink, purple, bright blue and green. And some have turned hot pink around the edges. The colours in this photo below remind of those Zap ice lollies, do you remember them?
And just so you aren’t completely overloaded with hydrangea photos, here are a couple of other garden snaps. These are some of the last crocosmia seeds in the front garden; the rest have been scattered to fill in the gaps.
These little flowers are called Nemesia and smell like vanilla. They love sunshine and warm weather so I have no idea why they’re still growing in November. It’s freezing.
And that’s about all I have to report! A couple of my favourites from last week include Mrs Fox’s Den and a West Virginia garden update. Also congratulations to JibberJabberUK on getting an allotment plot!
