Fall Flowers

In spite of it being fall, there are many plants still flowering, as if summer is not over yet. In the front garden cape fuchsia dominate (partly because there are too many of them – overdue for a hard prune). The montbretia (crocosmia) will soon be done as their foliage is getting a bit tatty, but their orange blossoms are still cheerful. The mauve geraniums stick close to the ground but are always lovely.

Nearby the California poppies are heavily in seed, but flowers are persisting in clumps around my neighbourhood. These are in the Chinese cemetery a short distance from home.

See also my recent photos of the signs of fall from my back garden – these are all part of a series taken within two or three days of each other.

    • Hey Juanita, thanks a lot. I was not totally sure about that shot, but once I managed to tease a bit more out of the clouds I decided it was good enough. I like the mix of seed pods and blossoms.
