Flowers today - GBBD October 2011

Flowers today... just before freezing temps will come. Tomorrow. Prophecy says...

...beloved white pelargonium came home already....

... pansies went out, bought at the local bazaar today...

... fuchsia, lobelia and plectrantus came also home... fuchsia will survive... what about the rest? Do you see plectrantus flowering?





... barrel seems to be good location...

... Calluna vulgaris 'Elsie Purnell' planted last year, survived last harsh winter...This is really funny to see that so different flowers were blooming last October. For example Colchicum autumnale - naked ladies were blooming in October, this year end of August. I just had a thought that maybe its a sign that winter will come earlier... oh no!!







... Perovskia (Russian sage) self-seeded ....


... Erica vagans 'Diane Hornibrook' grow great in alkaline soil...




Thank you Carol for hosting Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.

Fabulous photos of a garden that is looking so very pretty. I do so hope you don't have too bad a winter and most of your beautiful plants make it through.

My favourites today wer most definitely that stunning Calluna and the lovely Erica.
