A garden walk before Christmas

Cosmos coming again - love 'em
 
My budlia in full glory in the corner of my garden
I am loving the Hollyhocks this year.  I have a few different colours and they are just so pretty
 
 
 
Lots of lovely blue with the "Aggies"
A place for all flowers in my garden
My birdies are giving me lots of pleasure
A baby canary no less!

A view through my Canadian Maple
Good old climbing geraniums on the fence. 
. . . and a Christmas Lilly from my sister Jayne a couple of years ago, and now flowering right on queue for Christmas - 3 flowers for 3 girls in the family
 
And for my Mum, a Christmas Table Runner
Hope you like it Mum

Wow such beautiful hollyhocks. It nice to see those blooming in your garden when here it's Winter and flowers such as those are asleep.

I am pleased you are getting repeat flowers on the Christmas lilly. Good value and a bit like a present from me each year.
