Garden Bloggers Foliage Day – November 2011
Time flies, really. It seems yesterday I was weeding under a scorching sun and now it’s winter already.
Yes, because finally we started experiencing some little frost and a taste of winter. The autumn has been very weird though, in fact some bulbs (I don’t even remember what they are) are sprouting already and that worries me a little because I don’t know what to do with them. Maybe I shouldn’t have planted them so early but I thought I was late at the time! I guess these are muscari americanum of some kind. On top of that I have all the allium spaerocephalon out of ground.
Anyway, let’s get back to some more appropriate pics. Here’s a couple of shots of a rose I’ve often published already but I can’t help it, this is really a great rose. It’s her first year here in Cà Rossa, so I haven’t seen any flowers or hips yet anyway the plant itself is really worthy, sane, exuberant and mutable. It’s the rosa spinosissima hybrid ‘Single Cherry’. Its autumn livery is a show and the plant is supposed to stay neat and rather small.
I’m very happy about the entire part of the garden where I planted this rose, mostly interesting during autumn though.
I only have a few pictures this time, so I leave you quickly with a crab apple ‘Red Sentinel’ little red fruit amongst some aster seed heads. I wish the camera didn’t run out of battery so quickly…
