The garden in November

The weather has been several degrees higher than it should be at this time of year, making the plants in the garden a bit confused.
I planted this Rowan in 1995, 4 months after we moved in. The leaves normally go a nasty grey-brown colour and fall off. This year they have turned this lovely golden colour. A result of the weather? The blackbird has been finishing the last of the berries.

I love the shape and colours of this Hydrangea quercifolia.

Schizostylis coccinea, a plant given to me several years ago. It always flowers in November. 

Euporatium rugosa 'Chocolate' loves its new home although its going over now.

Verbena boniarensis is still flowering.
