Flowers and Foliage Now / Re: October 2021 in the Northern Hemisphere
« Last post by Leena on October 25, 2021, 06:12:43 PM »
Last week we had several nights below zero, but the lowest was only -4C, so it was not so bad. This week it is warmer (+5-+10C) with rain and clouds,
but still nice when it isn't winter yet:).
Athyrium 'Ghost' picture is from earlier in October, now cold nights "killed" it for the winter.
Crocus speciosus 'Conqueror' has increased nicely.
White spotted double Helleborus (sown from seed ex seeds) flowers out of season, the same plant did it also last autumn.
Epimedium 'Buckland Spider' has always nice autumn colour.
The last picture is of a new raised bed I made last week for my Hepatica seedlings:), or some of them. There isn't enough room for all when they are big, but for now I have there some potfuls of seedlings germinated last spring:).

I am delighted to see the shrew because though I've read about them, we don't have them in NZ so I've never seen one. As for the mossy rose gall, what a lovely thing. Actually I DO know those very well. They signify a bad hair day.  :D

If you find a new species, you might be able to name it.

If you find an unnamed mountain, may you name it?
