On third successive day largely overcast but cooler I took a walk round the garden to see what I could find.
Trees were silhouetted against the midday sky, while birds flew overhead.
A few flattened limp leaves had succumbed to the cold.
Apart from the winter flowering Cirrhosa clematis “Freckles”, enjoying a brief moment of sunlight,
the nearest to prolific flowers was represented by the increasing lichen on the Nottingham Castle bench.
The peach climbing rose photographed a couple of days ago is past its peak but has a few buds waiting to take its place; the pink Generous Gardener bravely persists, as do yellow Absolutely Fabulous, Festive Jewel, and another pale pink climber.
In addition we have pansy-like violas, out of season hebes, bacopas, penstemon, and hydrangeas.
This evening we all dined on second helpings of last night’s Chinese takeaway meal with added spare ribs. Jackie drank more of the White Zinfandel, and I finished the Carménère.
