October garden colour

Octoberflow4We have been enjoying the beautiful poppies. These wereOctoberflow2 seeds planted  and mentioned in a previous post. (link underlined)



OctoberflowThis small collection of seeds have produced an attractive group of pretty, colourful flowers and hopefully they willOctoberflow3 seed and provide flowers and colours for years to come. Rio is enjoying the autumn sunshine.

Octoberflow5As I had my camera, I couldn’t resist taking a photograph of a newly planted  Viburnum Bodnantense “Dawn” with four pretty polyanthus.



Octoberflow8For many years I have thought hydrangeas with their Octoberflow9mophead flowers rather old fashioned, we have inherited three plants from the previous owner and I have changed my mind, they are so pretty.


Octoberflow7Finally these summer flowering canna and the annual verbenas are still providing colour until the first Octoberflow6frosts, hopefully the pansies will continue flowering through to spring.
