Autumn Glory is in my Garden

 Begonia's are blooming in my hot house.

 This is a lovely native hibiscus that is thriving in my potato box out the back.  The only downfall of this plant is that the flowers only last a couple of days, so I have to check each day so as not to miss them.
 This is the Make A Wish Salvia, and has been flowing like this ALL summer and now into Autumn.  Great value in the garden.
 Hannah Gordon Rose - a lot like Double Delight.

 Japanese Windflowers . . . and this lovely Clematis
 . . . and finishing off with this spectacular Begonia at my back door.  That was a walk around the garden with me today.

 I think it was last year some time when the lovely Ros from Bloom sent me an exciting parcel in the mail.
 It contained some very special bulbs, and this is one of the results.  I'd forgotten what it was, and the tag has long since gone west, so I set about investigating my mother's gardening books the other night.
 This was the result: Xephyranthes. commonly known as Rain Lilly.
 It is so beautiful and just a single flower so far. 
 -Thank you Bloom-
for sharing some of your garden with me.

Autumn has come and it's a wonderful time in the garden.  Lots of pinks at the moment and . . . loving it.
