Its always good manners to mention that this weekly post owes its title to Cathy. She hosts many gardeners' arrangements. This week she has set a challenge for our 6th Anniversary next week...and I think my vase this week would fit the bill! Do go and enjoy others if you have the time.
Perseverance: a well known motto used by my parents for all sorts of reasons and situations. The first house they built was called 'Perseverance House'.
Without a cold snap the Fuchsias and the one Dahlia have been persevering despite the days of rain. Yesterday was fairly sunny...but ended with very heavy rain by bed time. Some herbaceous plants went into the doldrums during the hot dry summer, but have supplied fresh blooms recently.
In the vase: Fuchsia Upright Delta's Sarah with the large white buds flushed pink which is as yet demure and hiding its blue petticoats; the small white Fuchsia Hawkshead and the probably the last of small bloom of white Dahlia Gallery Art Fair; Astrantia Major 'Sunningdale Variegated' is now showing its own in the garden.
Just to be certain in future that this is not a 'stored' picture from the summer...I set the conservatory time piece by it too! Picture taken on 4th November at 7:49!
Whilst we were on the Gower...I read through our November Book for the Book Club...quite a page turner.
And since I have a little time waiting to read the next book, I picked up Alan Titchmarsh's Trowel and Error which I am enjoying...
