November loveliness

I won't lie, November is so very much richer now that I have a real proper garden.

Pear perfection

Perennials get away with looking rather past their best when they're in a garden; when you're gardening in pots in a tiny area, you tire of the old and gravitate towards the shiny and new much earlier.

Some things just keep bringing it (Geranium 'Orion' and Achillea millefolium) ...And the evergreens begin to have their moment - especially if, like me, you get out and plant some... Here is my yew hedge...newly planted, and about which I am stupidly excited.
