photoblog image November Nasturtiums.

November Nasturtiums.

It's November tomorrow so how on earth are these nasturtiums still growing and flowering?

 

A packet of seeds in spring has bought so much joy from these plants. I wanted a sunny day to photo them but for the past few days we have been shrouded in mist. The are such a wonder to look at in the gloom.

Your back garden looks quite exotic, Pauline
Pauline: Only because you don't see the muddy tracks left by Carrek, Lisl. The palm tree is named Paddy, and was bought many years ago as a tiny thing in a plastic coffee cup. He lived for years in a plant pot, and when we moved here he got planted in the garden. You could almost hear his sigh of relief when he went into the ground.

It's been misty here too Pauline but yesterday in Salisbury with Lisl it was like summer!
Pauline: It didn't lift at all yesterday, Chris. But today is like summer and so welcome.
Even without the sun, Pauline, this is delightful. Astrid LOVES growing plants from seeds and bulbs. I can think of few things that give her more childlike wonder!
Pauline: It's a moment of joy when the first little sign of life comes from something you have planted with such hope, Ginnie.
You planted them in the ground? Wonderful! We are having very good plant growing weather too. I passed a garden yesterday with maybe a dozen rose bushes in full bloom.
Pauline: Yes, Mary, tiny little seeds that have given such pleasure. Today is like summer and so many gardens have flowers blooming that shouldn't be there.
This mild weather has got a lot of things growing on out of season
Pauline: But isn't so wonderful to have so much colour this time of year, Martin?
Happy Hallowe'en... the plants look lovely too.
Pauline: Thank you, Jacquelyn, happy Halloween to you too.
They are still going well aren't they. I remember eating them down at my Nana's garden when I was a kid. It was bright here first thing but got cloudier as the morning went on but let's hope for better tomorrow
Pauline: It was lovely this morning, Janet, but clouded over this pm, at least it hasn't rained and we got a lot done in the garden.
It is all a bit crazy. We have a rose blooming that is normally early and over and done by June!
