A little piece of California

imageSo there I was earlier on, transporting the leaves and the dead Dahlia stems round to the compost heap when I was distracted by the incredibly bright, day-glo orange, yellow and red flowers of the Californian Poppies (Escholtzia). Still flowering in the weak November sun, despite some white frosts on the grass at the beginning of the week. Fairly warmed me up just looking at them!image Mind you, growing under the roses, we’ve still got some Livingston Daisies (Mesembryanthemum)  almost flowering – they’re producing nice buds but there’s sadly now not quite enough power in the sun to open them fully.
