Not usually known for flowering in November the Chaenomeles, the flowering quince (featured image) was looking especially bright and beautiful against its leafless stems and dull light of a grey day. I hope it will flower again in Spring.
More expected autumn colour abounded the garden looking no less splendid:
I have to say ‘wow’ to the stunning Rhus typhina glade in my friends garden:
When Louis, my eldest son was born on November 10th, I wanted to dedicate a tree to his birth. I didn’t want to buy a tree just in case it died and would be a bit of an omen, so I just chose one. This is it.
That was in my pre-gardening days.
When I saw this glade yesterday it brought back that emotion. I was in awe of the beauty of this tree, as I was of my son. The wonder of nature overwhelmed me and wonderfully continues to do so, year after year.
