The weather recently has not been conducive to strolling around the garden.
Venturing out on Sunday to check for any wind damage and relieved to find everything intact, I fetched the camera to record what was flowering here in November.
The Cobaea scandens, which I have posted about before, is still rampantly growing in all directions. This stem is half way up through the cherry tree by the patio. the majority of the blooms have been purple, it is nice to see some white ones.
The other rampant annuals are the Nasturtiums, this one has self sown from last year.
The Hakonechloa macro 'Aureola' adds a splash of bright green in a pot on the patio...
...also in a pot is the non stop flowering Geranium 'Rozanne'.
The evergreen Viburnum tinus provides a flowering screen to the water buts at this time of year.
Through the Vitis 'Spectchley Red' covered arch...
...to the mixed border where the late flowering Eupatorium macula. 'Chocolate', with its chocolate coloured leaves and white flowers...
...and the Hydrangea 'Blue Wave', whose white flowers have a faint hint of blue in our soil, providing the only flower colour in this area.
It is amazing when walking around your own garden, how you can miss a plant in flower, I suddenly noticed the flowers on the Viburnum f 'candidissimum'...
...I don't think I have seen so many flowers on it before...
...close to the buds are little, tight clusters of scent.
Writing a garden blog, along with taking photos, encourages you to look closer at your garden, it is easy to just go out and work in your own garden and not stop to look around.
I have observed since writing about Our Garden@19 how some colours appear to dominate at different times of year.
In these photos white is, perhaps, surprisingly the main colour.
What colour dominates your garden at this time of year?
