........and still my Lewisia cotyledon hybrids flower. These photographed today should last until early November with new flower spikes to come. I haven't the heart to put them out of the greenhouse but I really need the space to get my Auriculas back in from there Summer quarters. Decisions, decisions???

Very nice David!  I must get some again.  I had some once upon a time, but they disappeared and I didn't replace them.  Had one by the pond in the stonework, on its side, but it got covered by other plants and saw no sun... my own fault.

Cheers.

Here's my Galanthus peshmenii starting to flower, as usual without leaves, in the greenhouse. My reginae-olgae which flowered several weeks ago, still has no leaves visible.

My Galanthus peshmenii flowered a few weeks ago.
My Galanthus reginae-olgae have not flowered (yet ?) leaves just appearing !

Here's a bit more autumn colour from my garden. The Royal fern, Osmunda regalis is giving a good show, so is the ginkgo - in fact the autumn colour everywhere is outstanding this year.

I bought Larix 'Diana' at the weekend and Abies 'Silver Pearl'. Shocked to see/find them at a local garden centre

Thought you might enjoy the autumn tints of my mature Acer palmatum atropurpureum superbum I bought it over 30 years ago and it it came from Japan via the Trans Siberian railway. I think it was worth the trouble

The autumn colour down here in Southern England is the best I've seen for a very long time. Perfect weather conditions for it - plenty of moisture in the ground, cold nights but no frosts to make the leaves drop, and no heavy rain or strong winds to knock the leaves off prematurely. Everything that can produce autumn tints is doing, and exceptionally well, from brilliant butter-yellow Norway maples to the local beech woods. It's incredible.  :D

Colour here in Northumberland is the best I can remember seeing.  Don't need that trip to New England this year, have it all in my own garden!  So enjoyable.
