I did not put this leaf in my yew trees .. it fell asleep there after playing in the wind : )
This Cityline hydrangea (I would have to sift through the many plant tags to nail which exceptional beauty this is) .. the colour reminds me of my hellebore flowers .. some what black and dusty dark blue .. I'm hoping the two I planted in the back garden will do as well as this one in the front.
Pinky Winky has faded but he still makes me smile even if it is just his name at this point .. it still strikes me as hilarious ?
Berberis Thunbergii Aurea is augmented with gold colour by way of a miniature spirea behind it.
The mix of colours is really eye catching especially in the afternoon light.
The mini spirea is Dakota Goldcharm .. a beautiful little spirea that is perfect for small places !
The last of the echinacea seed heads remind me of sea urchins some how .. those spines sticking out .. yet inviting to the birds at the same time.
Morden Sunrise is still so green and trying to put out still more rosebuds .. along with the green blue of Walker's Low .. life struggles to keep its head up when winter is breathing down its neck.
Lemon Thyme ... one of my most favorite scents in the garden .. and the variegation of colour is so pretty too .. again herbs that are not used as much as they should be some gardeners are missing so much without them ;-)
Provence lavender ... still looking spectacular and smelling awesome !
On with another hue of blue and green is Blue Fescue .. but I am not sure which exact cultivar this is .. however it looks great as do its twins on the other side of the garden : )
Now doesn't this remind you of a very fragile, yet graceful hand out stretched to greet some one ? The sun was hitting it just right for a soft glowing affect.
The other stalks of the miscanthus Purple Flame grass standing tall against the blue sky were also very pretty !
Yes .. this is an almost left over Halloween plant ... the seed heads of my goatsbeard .. rather striking aren't they ?
Last is the Royal Purple Smokebush against the blue sky .. I keep thinking this will be the last day we have such amazing weather so late in the year .. I'm sure that cold front is working its way here SOON .... BBBRRRRRR !!
